A new co-ordinator has been hired to steer the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable, a multi-stakeholder effort to promote sustainable, healthy watersheds in the region.

Krista Englund will take on the part-time job after the Roundtable Core Committee secured $75,500 from a variety of funders. The funds will be used to develop Phase I of a watershed plan for the Lower Coquitlam River watershed and to launch a discussion series called Watershed Cafés.

The funding partners are the Real Estate Foundation of BC ($40,000), Metro Vancouver ($20,000), Fisheries and Oceans Canada ($10,000), Watershed Watch Salmon Society/Bullitt Foundation ($5,000) and the Coquitlam Foundation ($500).

As well, the group will set up a web site with virtual tours of the watershed this summer and hold a meeting for participating members in November.
