World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) organized an online workshop, Parker’s Brook: Then and Now, which was held on October 27, 2020 and hosted in Newfoundland and Labrador. The workshop’s purpose was to bring together community members, resource managers, and science and engineering experts to share information on the Parker’s Brook aquatic system and its ecologically unique population of Arctic char, Salvelinus alpinus, as well as Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, and brook trout, Salvelinus fontinalis. The workshop was designed to encourage community engagement in the planning of restoration actions and long-term stewardship of the river and its aquatic resources.
We at SPAWN are happy to make the presentations available below. They contain a wealth of information that covers the start of the project, what has been going on over the years to a point where the project is now.
