Nanaimo River Working Group moving forward to protect watershed.

The Nanaimo Area Land Trust is moving forward on a strategy to better protect the Nanaimo River watershed.

The Nanaimo River Working Group, a gathering of community partners created during a river symposium NALT hosted last year, is meeting Thursday (April 26) at Vancouver Island University in the lounge of Bldg. 355 to discuss the issue.

Participants will discuss how the board or committee will be structured to carry out work in the future.

“The project kicked off during the symposium in the fall and we are moving that process forward,” said Gail Adrienne, NALT’s executive director.

Any organization or individual interested in being involved in the process can call NALT at 250-714-1990.
