Officially launched in April 2018, our WPS Salt Spring Island FreshWater Catalogue project is on track for a solid second year, moving from a project startup "push" to an active project "pull." We have a growing number of project volunteers, have been successful in a key grant application, and have reached more 250 islanders with our educational outreach.
As a reminder, the FreshWater Catalogue (aka SSIFWC) is about

Fellow water-conscious folks,
As a way of introduction, I would like to use this blog post as a way to say “Hi,” to tell you a little about myself, and to provide an outline of what I plan to do as a volunteer within the Salt Spring Island Water Protection Society (WPS).
The SSI Water Preservation Society is a non-profit society that has been working to protect the water and watersheds of Salt Spring’s drinking-water lakes since 1982. The Society also owns and manages 272 forested acres on the slopes west of St. Mary Lake now protected by a conservation covenant.
