Fraser Watershed Initiative
The Fraser Watershed Initiative is working to create a $500 million restoration fund. The fund will enable the largest restoration project in Canada – Restoring the Fraser Watershed
Fraser Watershed Restoration Conference 2019
Where: Thompson Rivers University
When: April 24 & 25 2019
The iconic Fraser Watershed is suffering an ecological and economic crisis from historical development, forest fires, climate change and other ecological impacts that exacerbate the stresses on salmon, caribou and a myriad of terrestrial and riverine species. This is leading to a decline in natural resources and employment opportunities.
The Fraser Watershed Restoration Conference will bring together Indigenous leaders, industry experts, government representatives, academics, community officials, and conservationists from British Columbia and across North America, who are interested in advancing watershed restoration and reconciliation with First Nations throughout the watershed.
