SEHAB Meeting in Parksville, BC–Photos

The Salmon Enhancement and Habitat Advisory Board met in Parksville, BC, over the last weekend. We had a Friday Night Forum at which nearly 60 local stewards heard a presentation on the new DFO Fisheries Protection Program. The SEHAB board then met for a full day of working meetings on Saturday, and a half-day on Sunday. I am board Secretary and Chair of the Communication Committee, and I love these opportunities for intensive sharing of knowledge and information about salmon-related stewardship activities from across British Columbia. It's also great to get out of the lower mainland and learn about stewardship projects in other places, and meet the volunteers and local champions who get things done.

Here's some photos of the trip:

As the communication guy, I point out that "You are here!" Um, somewhere in
Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park.
