Creating Sustainable Funding for Ecosystems and Watersheds
November 15, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Did you miss this presentation at the “Different by Design” conference in Nelson in September? Rural communities are challenged to attract sustainable funding for conservation efforts, including supporting watershed protection and restoration.
The first part of this webinar will focus on watersheds and opportunities for new partnerships that can bring new dollars to watershed protection. The second part of this webinar will focus on the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund, a tax-based fund for conservation that was the first of its kind in Canada.
Speakers are Dr. Tara Lynne Clapp (Senior Manager for the Columbia Basin Watershed Network and Adjunct Professor, Great Plains IDEA Program, Iowa State University) and Juliet Craig (KCP Program Manager).
