"The river runs through our community and holds us together. Supports our salmon and our way of life. It makes us who we are."
There is a myth here in British Columbia that our rivers and lakes provide limitless, clean water.

We’ll be talking to people all over the province to find out about the challenges facing their local watersheds and what can be done to solve them.
This is the Freshwater Stream, a podcast about BC’s watersheds and the people who care about them.
