Re-Think Our Watershed presentation at NIC

All those interested invited to attend Feb. 24 from 7-9:30 p.m. at Stan Hagen Theatre

Who manages the Comox Lake Watershed?

How do we protect the source of the Valley’s drinking water for future generations? What are the risks to the health of the watershed? What can citizens of the Comox Valley do to help shape the future?

These are just a few of the questions that will be up for discussion at Re-Think Our Watershed on Tuesday Feb. 24, from 7-9:30 p.m. at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College.

Re-Think Our Watershed is a forum designed to stimulate conversation and action around the long-term management of the Comox Lake Watershed. Featuring diverse panelists from local government (CVRD), the forest industry (TimberWest), as well as conservation and watershed management experts, Re-Think Our Watershed is shaping up to be an engaging event that will inspire dialogue around a critical community issue.

“The health of the Comox Lake Watershed faces significant pressures,” says David Stapley, of the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy steering committee. “There are also multiple layers of government, agencies and industry involved in its day-to-day management. This event gives us the opportunity to look at the current context and explore options and ideas for future management that could help protect the region’s drinking water and the health of the Watershed for generations to come.”

The evening will include panel presentations, a Q&A from the audience and a hands-on activity where attendees can put forward their hopes, ideas, and vision for the future of the Comox Lake Watershed.

“The intention of this event is to bring together parties in a positive, future-focused exchange of ideas on watershed management that can secure the health of the community’s drinking water source,” says Stapley.

Re-Think Our Watershed is presented by the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy Community Partnership. Presenting partners include Imagine Comox Valley and the Comox Valley Regional District.

This is a free event but pre-registration is requested as seating is limited. To register and hold a seat email cvconservation@outlook.com. Be sure to include your name and contact information.
