    31 MAY 2021 · This week, Danielle meets with Tara Marsden and Trixie Bennett.

These iconic rivers and their watersheds have been centers of culture, commerce, and biodiversity for thousands of years and are the lifeblood of the numerous communities and nineteen federally recognized tribes of the region.

A podcast about B.C.’s watersheds, and the people who care about them.

There is a myth here in British Columbia that our rivers and lakes provide limitless, clean water. And certainly that was once the case in much of the province. But, due to resource extraction, poor water management and climate change, many communities are facing serious water shortages in the coming years.

We’ll be talking to people all over the province to find out about the challenges facing their local watersheds and what can be done to solve them.
