ALESS, in welcome collaboration with Gerry Nellestijn and Eleanor Duishuis, of the Salmo Watershed Stream keeper’s Society, recently held a watershed planning meeting at the Senior’s Hall in Nakusp (5 December, 1 to 4pm), to present our organizations to a number of major stakeholders operating within the ALESS proposed jurisdictional area (Galena Bay south to Castelgar, incorporating the adjacent valleys with tributaries feeding into the Arrow Lakes region).
A total of 15 individuals attended the session, including representatives from 6 of the major local stakeholders, all of whom actively and positively supported our proposed activities.
Look forward to a new and invigorated ALESS, working with local groups in a non-confrontational approach, to identify and address pressing ecosystems concerns in our local area! We are all bound to Nature in a very real and immediate sense, respectful of the need for positive action in protecting and enhancing our total living environment for all life within our biosphere.
We encourage all interested parties and individuals to provide input via our website. This is crucial to ensure that everyone with an interest in their local living environment has an equal chance to present their thoughts and aspirations!
