Landscape-level Change | LSS 2021

Brent Preston | Kim A. Stephens | Kimberly Cornish | Michael Blackstock2021-02-23

Watersheds provide a myriad of vital services such as aquifer recharge, clean drinking water, cultural value, wildlife habitat, and recreation. To meet, maintain, and restore these services, we need to work together. Water knows no borders. It flows freely in and out of jurisdictions and connects us all. Advancing policies, laws, and decisions that protect our watersheds requires us to acknowledge this. In this session, Michael Blackstock, an independent Indigenous scholar, will share his framework to shift our perspective. We will also learn from multi-stakeholder projects using data to build consensus and develop land-based systems to restore, maintain and value the water we all depend on.
