Healthy Harbor – A Gibsons Initiative
Aquarium Curator Jenny Wright, (NSMEC), is taking the initiative to lead the Healthy Harbour Project in Gibsons. There will be a virtual community engagement event on Tuesday, Feb 22. Jenny is working on logistics and will share info with Julian Taylor, who will pass it on to GYC members.
The goal is to share stories about Gibsons harbor and surrounding waters. She wants to build community and introduce the eelgrass protection area. SeaChange and NSMEC (Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre) are establishing the eelgrass protection area in early March, in partnership with the Town of Gibsons. It will be in front of Armours Beach.
“We would like to showcase diverse voices from the Gibsons community and beyond, including residents, the harbourmaster and Squamish Nation members,” says Jenny. “If you want to share a story about connection with local waters, we would love that. It can be a few minutes, no longer than 8-10 minutes.
“You are welcome to share photos, videos, or anything that may enhance the story. If you would like to participate, please let me know.
