Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition

How does a small local-vocal conservation crew achieve such high impact landmarks, win precedent-setting battles and connect a diverse region with one clear stance on watershed protection? SWCC swims against the current! They live in and love the Skeena Watershed – home to Canada’s second largest wild salmon migration. They have boots on the ground, paddles in the water and their hearts in the community and have been an innovative, respected voice for the Skeena Watershed since 2004. SWCC is deeply connected to land, water and their communities. The coalition specializes in science, getting folks out on the land, art, community organizing, economic development and indigenous rights.
