Over the years, ESSA has undertaken many projects in the Columbia River Basin including creating management plans, providing expert advice, and developing tools to guide decision-making and implementation.
In recognition of this history, ESSA’s President, Clint Alexander, was invited to present on the value of collaboration as part of the Salmon Restoration and Reintroduction Discussions at the Columbia Basin Transboundary Conference in Kimberley, BC. His presentation, The Value of Collaboration, spoke to the value of collaboration, its complexities and significance in the face of competing interests, and how by working together—we can achieve more.
Senior Systems Ecologist, Cedar Morton, also attended the conference to facilitate a session on Ecosystem Functions.
The conference leveraged local subject-matter experts, researchers, policy makers, Traditional Knowledge keepers, and scientists to deliver fresh perspectives on the Columbia River’s future. ESSA was pleased to be a sponsor of the event.
