In support of our ongoing work in the Slocan Lake Watershed, SLSS collaborates with a wide range of organizations. We align with the traditional ecological knowledge of First Nations, collaborating on conservation projects and initiatives on a case-by-case basis. SLSS is continually expanding and sharing our knowledge by participating in a variety of local and regional stewardship committees.
