Puget Sound Georgia Basin Research Conference:

The biennial Puget Sound Georgia Basin Ecosystem Conference is the largest, most comprehensive scientific research and policy conference in the Salish Sea region. The 2009 conference, hosted by the Puget Sound Partnership and Environment Canada, will further the experiences of previous conferences by connecting scientific research and management techniques to priorities for meaningful action. The 2009 conference will emphasize the importance of working collaboratively to solve some of the complex issues that cross political borders.


The Elwha watershed is the largest in Olympic National Park; restoration of salmon to the over 70 miles of river and tributaries will return vital nutrients to the watershed and will restore the entire ecosystem. For the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, this project will bring cultural, spiritual and economic healing as salmon return after a century’s absence and flooded sacred sites are restored.

BC Wild offers workshops and programs for youth in BC’s wild places. Project Cariboo workshop will give formal and non-formal educators the opportunity to learn more about the unique species Rangifer tarandus and the six sub-species living throughout North America. Many biologists consider caribou populations as reflectors of the health of the ecosystems in which they live. If caribou thrive, the ecosystem is stable, if populations are declining, then we should be looking for changes in the environment or in our interactions with the species there. During the workshop participants will learn more interesting caribou facts and additional BC conservation information, as well as have the opportunity to try some of the 17 activities in the Guide and learn how they can fit into your curriculum or community program. Participants will leave the workshop able to immediately apply and teach their new knowledge of caribou. The Guide is supported by an updated website offering current Caribou Case studies and new activities.
