Acknowledgement of Territories
The Watershed Sentinel is produced on unceded Coast Salish territories, specifically of the K’ómoks First Nation. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way. We are very grateful to the K’ómoks First Nation for their ongoing generosity in sharing their culture with and actively educating the wider community. As settlers on this land, we are working towards better understanding how we can support Indigenous sovereignty.
For more information visit the K’ómoks First Nation’s website.
The Watershed Sentinel is western Canada’s award-winning environmental news magazine.
In a world where our news is increasingly monopolized and corporate-controlled, the Watershed Sentinel remains the voice of the grassroots – the folks who are working on the environmental issues that face us today: oil and gas pipeline projects, water, climate change, GMOs, fish farming, conservation efforts, etc. The Watershed Sentinel provides a forum for intelligent discussion about environmental issues and their broader social implications.
More than just a magazine. ..
We have been the voice of the grassroots environmental movement in Canada for over 25 years. When Canadian environmental community groups and thinkers want to have their story heard, they contact us and we share their story via our magazine, website or social media. Our many connections to activist organizations and people mean we are able to glean the press releases and action alerts that come across our desk and get the word out quickly to you.
The Watershed Sentinel has come a long way from its beginnings as a community newsletter on Cortes Island, BC. Throughout the years, Editor, Delores Broten, has remained at the helm, using her investigative journalist skills and a network of activist colleagues to provide articles that meet a high standard of writing.
Our team is supported in large part by dedicated sponsors, patrons, and sustaining subscribers. We also rely on the guidance and support of our Board of Directors and the many volunteers – proofreaders, peer-reviewers, writers, photographers, graphic artists, and fact checkers – who lend their skills. Thank you!
