In June 2022, KCP hosted an East Kootenay Stewardship Committee meeting in Cranbrook, and a West Kootenay Stewardship Committee in Nelson, with the option of remote attendance via Zoom for both.
Each of the attendees provided 2-minute updates on their organization’s activities using the following two questions as a guide: (1) What’s 1 item or activity that you are working on that you want to be sure others know about? (2) What’s 1 potential collaboration that you/your organization could offer or you would like to request from others? There was also the opportunity for open discussion on current stewardship topics.
The respective morning meetings were followed by local field tours in the afternoon. In the East Kootenay, the field tour was held at the Wycliffe Conservation Complex. The West Kootenay field tour took place at the Queen Victoria Mine area near Beasley.
