The Real Estate Foundation of BC highlighted the Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ watershed work in this recent blog posting.
From the Real Estate Foundation:
Freshwater Sustainability is one of the Real Estate Foundation’s grant program focus areas. We have been supporting freshwater projects in the East Kootenays since 2003, and have awarded two grants to the Ambassadors. One of them was for the watershed governance pilot discussed in this article. (Visit the Projects page to view all the grants.)
