Nominate a BC river for the 2018 endangered rivers list!

HCBC Staff
Created: January 23, 2018

HCBC is a member of the Outdoor Recreation Council - your input is needed and welcome.

Persons or organizations making a nomination are requested to complete the brief online Endangered Rivers Survey at:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbMnPt5dsNmmJ_2agv9CRtDL_PgRDaim-30Vp20ydkS6XqdQ/viewform . The deadline for making nominations is Monday, March 12, 2018 by 4:00 PM.

Members and clubs of ORC's member organizations, and any other individuals knowledgeable about threats to our rivers, are invited to nominate rivers for the list. The Outdoor Recreation Council of BC will publish its 2018 Endangered Rivers List in spring 2018.

The survey collects information about environmental impacts and threats, such as pollution and habitat destruction, as well as loss of outdoor recreation activities due to poor river health. Public recreation may include fly and drift fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, birdwatching, and riding or walking by the river.

British Columbia’s Endangered Rivers List is published every two years and details the province’s most imperiled rivers. The List will include rivers or streams considered to be the most or threatened after the Committee has reviewed your nominations. The list receives significant media attention, highlighting the rivers and issues that are most important to British Columbians. The last endangered rivers list was published in 2016.
