Indigenous Land Use Planning
Tara Marsden is a Senior Indigenous Advisor to the Healthy Watersheds Initiative. A member of the Gitanyow First Nation, she has spent most of her life in Northern BC in the Skeena and Nass Watersheds. She will speak to the importance of Indigenous Land Use Planning—what it is, how it can be implemented across Salmon Nation, and the myriad benefits it holds. This is a tested, proven practical approach to complex problems, helping to support watershed restoration and health and mitigate climate change. Discover why Indigenous approaches to land use planning are essential for the health of our ecosystems and our communities.
