HOW WE ARE DOING IT
We are taking a multi-pronged approach including research, field work, engagement, and supporting projects however we can.
FIXING FLOOD INFRASTRUCTURE FOR FISH AND COMMUNITIES
Watershed Watch Salmon Society's Connected Waters campaign revealed 1500 km of disconnected waterways adjacent to the Fraser River blocked by 156+ aging flood control infrastructure like pump stations, flood boxes, and dikes.
Since we launched we are continually working to identify and move high priority opportunities alongside our partners and collaborators. Our objective is to remove or upgrade flood infrastructure to allow fish passage to sites that are most important to salmon and communities in a way that benefits all involved.
We are guided by and collaborate with a broad collective of First Nations, local governments, all other levels of government, ENGOs, stewardship groups, and academics. We are reaching out to everyone that has an interest in reducing flood risk and helping to recover salmon. We convene local governments and First Nations to facilitate solutions that benefit everyone. See more about us and who we are talking to.

We look to fill crucial capacity and knowledge gaps in farm, fish, and climate friendly infrastructure solutions.
To better understand the ecological potential of individual tributaries and flood plain blocked behind flood infrastructure, Pearson Ecological is collecting baseline conditions and effectiveness monitoring data at high opportunity sites. Our first year of field work begins in March 2021 at our shortlist of opportunity sites.
We've also gathered lots of resources related to the lower Fraser watershed, Fish Passage, and Flood Infrastructure, and we host a webinar series bringing local and international experts together to talk solutions.
