Dealing with the pressures facing the Coquitlam River watershed will be the focus of a discussion Saturday, May 31 at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex.

Organized by the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable, the forum will feature a keynote address by leading thinkers in the field of ecosystem health, facilitated sessions and a review of the "pressures rating" assessment exercise used to identify key pressures affecting the watershed. As well, David Rapport and Luisa Maffi will speak about "Managing for Healthy Watersheds: What Does it Take, Really?"

Participants will help to plan strategies and priorities for the Coquitlam River watershed for the year and will enjoy morning refreshments and lunch. There will also be displays and opportunities to provide ideas and input.

Anyone with an interest in the Coquitlam River Watershed is invited to attend this free workshop, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (doors open at 8:30 a.m.). Registration is recommended online or calling the meeting co-ordinator at 604-677-2759.

The CRW roundtable is helping to produce a watershed plan for the region. The group is also on Facebook.
