Guardian Watchmen Conference 2012

The 5th Annual Guardian Watchman Gathering was held at Hakai Beach Institute on Calvert Island from May 14th to 18th, 2012. Over 30 participants from 8 coastal First Nations attended the Annual Gathering, including Guardian Watchmen and other resource stewardship staff. They gathered to share experiences, strategize and build their skills to improve monitoring and stewardship of their traditional territories. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the successes of the past 5 years.

Neighbouring Nations met to discuss issues of common concern on the Central and North Coast and Haida Gwaii.  Participants practiced strategic communication techniques for working with the public, gathering evidence and note-taking on suspicious activities and honed their skills at assessing salmon habitat features in streams.
