Water Quality Information Gathering Project

The Coast Salish leadership has joined forces to begin a unique process of gathering and sharing water quality information from the Salish Sea.

The Annual Canoe Journey is a traditional gathering of Coast Salish peoples, who travel through the water ways of the Salish Sea.  The project proposes to collaborate with several canoe participants and request their permission to equip the canoes with water quality gathering tools and staff.  The purpose is to gather water quality information throughout the Salish Sea, from the waters of Bella Coola, British Columbia, through the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound.
The outcome of the Water Quality Information Gathering Project will be an extensive gathering of water quality information that can be shared between the Coast Salish Tribes and First Nations. The long-term objective will be to establish an annual collaboration with the Annual Canoe Journey to collect and provide water quality information through out the Salish Sea.
