In the interview, Deb and Kirk discuss the case of Still Creek, one of only two daylit streams in the City of Vancouver. After decades of pollution and neglect, salmon recently returned to the creek to spawn.

This case study provides an example of transboundary collaboration on ecosystem management. Partnership, creative governance, community engagement, and innovative funding approaches were all essential components that helped the cities of Vancouver and Burnaby come together to invest in ecosystem health and restore Still Creek.

Projects such as this also reflect on, and influence, our cultural and community identity, as the interview explores.
