Event Description

Under the streets of Metro Vancouver, there are hundreds of watersheds, ducking in and out of sight. Through careful management and stewardship, citizens can show leadership in urban watershed restoration and education. Join Evergreen to explore how Metro Vancouver - from city managers and storytellers to volunteers and city residents - can work together in their communities.

What are the challenges and opportunities for watersheds in cities?

What stories do the watersheds hold?

Who are the stakeholders and stewards?

Special Guests:

DG Blair, Stewardship Centre for BC

Diana Eddowes, Earthwatch Institute

Carmen Rosen, Still Moon Arts Society

Sarah Primeau, space2place Landscape Architects

and others.

The forum will take place over two days. Dialogue and presentations on March 21st and a field trip to local watershed restoration sites on March 22nd.
