(April 3-4) Parksville 2019: Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate

In 2019, join the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC in Parksville at the City’s Community and Conference Centre (132 E. Jensen Avenue) for a field day on April 2, followed by a 2-day symposium on April 3-4

The rhythms of water are changing – warmer and wetter winters; longer and drier summers. Adapting to this ‘new normal’ requires transformation in how we value nature and service land, and how we reconnect hydrology and ecology. The goal of the ‘whole-system’ approach is to re-establish creekshed function!

The Water Symposium will celebrate local government initiatives on Vancouver Island that are ‘getting it right’. These success stories are characterized by 3 attributes: commitment, collaboration and the ‘hard work of hope’. A decade of effort, by partnerships of local governments and community stewards, is demonstrating success on the ground where it matters. They are on a pathway to reconnect hydrology and ecology.
