UBCO Presentation Hosted by Peachland Watershed Protection Alliance


On April 28, 2022, John Wagner and Rheanne Kroschinsky asked the Peachland Watershed Protection Alliance and other locals the following questions: Do you know who owns Peachland’s water? Who is responsible for Peachland’s water, who should be? What authority do local Indigenous people have over this ecosystem? Do you know who makes the decisions governing our water and watershed? Whose water is it, anyway?

John and Rheanne’s research attempts to identify best practices for the design of watershed governance institutions that are inclusive of both Indigenous and settler culture values and interests, committed to the long-term ecological health of the watershed, and capable of striking a reasonable balance among the competing interests that always occur in community watersheds such as Peachland Creek.
