As a science-driven organization, Slocan Lake Stewardship Society (SLSS) initiates and sponsors a wide range of aquatic, environmental, and wildlife research projects in order to continually expand our understanding and knowledge of all the ecosystems that impact the health of the Slocan Lake Watershed. We openly share this scientific data and information with conservation organizations, government agencies and the public. With this information, in collaboration with supportive funders, we have initiated multiple restoration projects to rehabilitate damaged areas of the watershed.
The educational arm of SLSS delivers hands-on learning and field trips, promoting conservation and stewardship of our natural assets. In our advocacy role, we provide public comment and input into proposed commercial, recreational and other development activities occurring within the boundaries of the Slocan Lake Watershed. Working cooperatively with local, regional and provincial governments we focus on fostering collective responsibility for the health and future of the Slocan Lake Watershed.
