Species at Risk Presentation @ the Arts Centre

Event Date:

We (Aimee Mitchell, Chris Currie, Dan Stewart) are a team of biologists that received federal funding to study and assist in the conservation of at-risk species in this region (Lasqueti, Texada, and the Powell River/Lund mainland). Some of you may have met us or heard about us when we spent some time on the island back in November.

emails to Merrick about Lasqueti fire department budget

These are emails from me to Merrick during the CoW meeting this afternoon, from Merrick to me after the meeting, and again from me to Merrick Thursday evening.

my response to Ryan, and board

Thank you for your replies to my three emails, Ryan.  I'll try to make this a short reply, with a minimum of new questions. I hope it will give you my perspective, which I believe is similar to that of many Lasqueti people.
