Community in Nature Project

Community in Nature is a project of the West Kootenay EcoSociety. People across BC are voicing the need to protect their drinking water. The environment around us can naturally provide clean drinking water. For nature to continue to keep our drinking water clean we need to plan for climate change impacts and design human uses in ways that keep the natural environment intact.
