Founded in 2004, the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition works to maintain the social and environmental health of Canada’s northwestern British Columbia region. The watershed comprises 54,234 km2 of land and includes the Skeena River, its tributaries and surrounding landmass. The area’s robust wildlife ecosystem includes all five species of wild salmon, the largest strain of wild steelhead in the world, moose, bear, caribou, mountain goats, wolves and stone sheep. It is also home to the traditional territories of many First Nation people and settler descendants.
The Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition supports the long-term stewardship of the watershed and represents the interests of the diverse people living there. It organizes and facilitates meetings between government officials, land developers and local communities to ensure an environmentally sustainable future economy. It contributes to baseline research on wildlife, water quality and natural heritage. Educational programming includes school outreach and a summer camp to teach local children and youth about the environmental resources of the region. Local river expeditions and elder storytelling events connect visitors and locals to the area’s culture and history.
Thank you for sharing.
