Community Activated Aquatic and Riparian Restoration at SṈIDȻEȽ

Explore the complex cultural and ecological landscape stories of SṈIDÈ»EȽ. This site was a wintering village for the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples for thousands of years. The narrative of its colonization, industrialization, environmental destruction and subsequent First Nations cultural revitalization, and community activated, land and water-based restoration will be the focus of this outdoor class. We’ll walk the land and converse with local knowledge keepers, Elders, activists, learners and educators.
