Sent on behalf of Lee Hesketh…
You’re invited to attend the 9th annual Biodiversity Tour and “Finding Common Ground” field day and social on November 25th in Lumby. The event is organized and hosted by Lee Hesketh, a rancher, facilitator, mediator, program manager with BC Cattlemen’s Association, and Fraser Basin Council director. Lee writes:
“Over the past 9 years, my family and friends have hosted a field day showcasing how the ranching community in our area has worked to protect and enhance the environment through promoting sustainable and innovative land management practices working with other stakeholders… This year I’m focusing on the possibility of restoring fish passage for salmon above BC Hydro’s Wilsey Dam… In recent years I have participated with the Wilsey Dam Fish Passage Committee composed of a broad cross-section of stakeholders. Through dedicated efforts of those individuals, the concept has moved up several steps in BC Hydro’s fish passage evaluation process. I see this as being a very significant time to increase the public discussion and provide greater awareness of the process in restoring passage.” Read the rest of this entry »
