2023 Community Watershed Monitoring Network - Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

Join us on Thursday, November 23rd, from 12:00 – 3:00pm at the Nanoose Place Community Centre for a catered lunch, door prizes, activities, and an opportunity to introduce your stewardship group to potential new volunteers.

The RDN’s Drinking Water & Watershed Protection team is grateful to be partnered with environmental stewardship groups from across the region, whose dedicated volunteer work make the Community Watershed Monitoring Network program a possibility. We are delighted to host an in-person event to express our appreciation and gratitude for your participation.

This event will also be open to the public, so those who may be interested in learning more about volunteering with a stewardship organization and participating in the Community Watershed Monitoring Network can connect with you and get involved. There will be opportunity to introduce your group to potential new volunteers by having a display table, providing a short presentation, and/or sharing your stewardship story!

Please register to attend by emailing waterstewardship@rdn.bc.ca by November 10th, 2023.

In your email, let me know:

  1. If your organization would like to have a display table at the event. We will provide tables for display materials and are happy to offer assistance with developing and printing materials that highlight your group. The venue is booked for a couple of hours before and after the event, so there is plenty of time for setting-up and taking-down displays.
  2. If you would like to give a short 5-minute presentation about your group and the important work you do. There will be a projector, screen, and microphone available at the venue for presentations, if desired. If you are planning to present with PowerPoint slides, we will also have a computer available so you may bring your presentation on a USB or email your presentation to waterstewardship@rdn.bc.ca prior to the event.
  3. If you have photos that you’d like to share of watersheds and water stewards. We will be putting together a photo slideshow of local streams and the folks who work hard to care for them. If you have any photos that you would like to share, please don’t hesitate to send them now and throughout the monitoring season to waterstewardship@rdn.bc.ca.
  4. If you would like to share your Stewardship Story. We will have an open-mic session, where participants will be invited to share their Stewardship Stories, such as how they became involved in stewardship work, what motivates them as an environmental steward, and how they are connected to the watersheds they care for. If you wish to share, you may let me know and prepare your story beforehand, but impromptu stories are also welcome!


We are very much looking forward to seeing you there!
