Ella Parker, an SLLP 2018 graduate, has completed her SLLP community sustainability project, which was to organize a film project to document the stream-monitoring program that UNBC and School District 91 co-designed to engage students in their watersheds.

The film, titled Stream Monitoring for Change in SD91 will be screened on Friday, March 15th, at 7:00 pm during a Reel Alternatives Film event at the Nechako Valley Secondary School.

The film tells a story about stream restoration and the connectedness of the environment and community health in Vanderhoof, B.C., while also capturing water monitoring that took place on Murray Creek in the fall of 2018 with Grade 8 and 9 students. Three high-school students from the Nechako Valley Secondary School worked alongside Ella Parker, a research assistant from the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), to produce this short film documenting their school’s stream monitoring program.
