Discussion to focus on pressures facing Coquitlam River
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.
