Join through Zoom here.
The Shawnigan Basin Society and the BC Coalition Institute are co-hosting a workshop series on “Sustaining Healthy Forests” in the Cowichan region to encourage citizen engagement in advocating for the health of the land. Forestry practices have significant impacts in our communities & on the health of our environment and shared lives. Engaging the First Nations perspective is critical to regaining the health of the land.
This workshop invites respected members of Cowichan Tribes to share indigenous knowledge on forest health and invites Cowichan Valley community members (and beyond) to participate in learning and discussion.
