ENVS 227 - Yukon Source Water Protection and Watershed Stewardship
The course has two over-arching goals. One is to learn ways to foster holistic connections between people, communities and watersheds, connections based on more than science. The second is to help facilitate and enhance, using both science and indigenous knowledge, the capacity of Yukon communities and First Nations to develop and implement plans for source water protection and watershed stewardship.
The course aims to increase community understanding of water management principles and promote acceptance of community-based watershed stewardship. The course encapsulates multiple perspectives and will include local indigenous knowledge and western science (i.e. hydrology, biology), in order to create a more comprehensive approach towards drinking water security and safety and overall watershed stewardship.
