Over the past 6 months, RSBC has been working with the BC Watershed Security Coalition calling for an investment in watershed security as a core focus of economic recovery for British Columbia. We want to thank you for supporting our efforts and are happy to report our message was heard.
Yesterday, the B.C. government announced an investment of $27 million in watershed initiatives and wetland projects across the province!
This funding comes at a critical time for the Fraser Watershed as climate change, urban development, industrial and resource use, and pollution continue to impact our watershed.
You can read the BC Watershed Security Coalition press release here and we will update our website with more details soon.
