Wetlands partnersPosted: August 13, 2012
On behalf of the Columbia Wetland Stewardship Partners, I want to thank you for the RBC Blue Waters grant. This funding will help us in our work of managing this biophysical paradise which is one of the largest wetland complexes in B.C., an International Ramsar site, and the only section of the Columbia River in North America still in a relatively natural state. We will use the RBC Blue Water funding to continue work on a Recreational Users Guide to the Columbia River Wetlands, documenting the natural and human history of this remarkable complex, and promoting its biodiversity and hydrological importance in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.
“We commend RBC for its Blue Waters initiative and your support of our work is very much appreciated.” – Gerry Wilkie, Columbia Wetland Stewardship Partners.
