Join the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC in Parksville, BC at the city’s Community and Conference Centre (132 E. Jensen Avenue) for the Symposium on Water Stewardship in Changing Climate. The symposium will take place over three days, the first being a field day on April 2nd, followed by a 2-day symposium on April 3rd and 4th.

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 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.
