Spirit of Coquitlam Grant

 

In an announcement made during October 2012, the Roundtable and Watershed Watch Salmon Society learned that they were the lucky recipients of a $1,800 grant.  The funds will be used to host a series of Watershed Cafés.  Similar to Philosopher Cafés in which the focus is on learning and dialogue, the Watershed Cafés will cover a variety of issues related to the Coquitlam River watershed.  One Café will be about ecosystem services and the value they deliver to communities and individuals.  Examples of ecosystem services are usable air, biodiversity, stable climate, available water, habitat/refugia, flood pfrotection, usable water, recreation and aesthetics, food, fiber and fuel supply.  Participants will be asked, “What is the value of living near the Coquitlam River?”  “Does the fact that there are salmon in the river contribute to your overall happiness?”
