Sustainable funding is a concern for watershed stewardship groups across the Basin. Most watershed stewardship groups rely on volunteer effort to accomplish the basics, with grant funding the go-to source for needed equipment, supplies, and larger project efforts.
In this webinar, we will re-examine some of the fundamentals of ‘value’ in watershed stewardship, and look at different approaches to matching the values we protect and provide to sources of funds.
Tara Clapp will introduce some of the ‘value frameworks’ that are used to create funding opportunities, and Gerry Nellestijn will relate his experience from the Salmo watershed with a encouraging a user-pay framework.
The Spring Member meeting will focus on the issue of sustainable funding, and this webinar serves as an introduction to some of the concepts.
