Join us for a mapping workshop on a shoreline in your community!
We are hosting workshops at beaches of interest along the East Coast of Vancouver Island for the duration of the Resilient Coasts for Salmon Project. In these workshops you will learn about shoreline habitat, sea level rise, coastal squeeze, and more, PLUS try your hand at collecting data! Later on, we will host community meetings to discuss our findings on the extent of hard armouring (e.g. seawalls, riprap), and discuss options for adaptation, including which areas to prioritize for restoration.
2023 Mapping Workshop Registration is Now Closed
Stay tuned for future mapping workshops
We will host more workshops in different communities in the upcoming years:
Summer/fall 2024 - North Island communities - Campbell River to Port McNeill
Summer/fall 2025 - Smaller or rural Island communities - Black Creek, Fanny Bay, Bowser, Royston, and Crofton
