Marine biologist Ramona de Graaf will be making a presentation at the Metchosin municipal hall, March 5 at 7 p.m.

The presentation will focus on the shoreline

ecosystems in Metchosin. The discussion will cover the values, risks and

stewardship practices available.

“(de Graaf) will give an information session about the vital role of marine shorelines as critical fish habitat. Topics that will be discussed include the linkages between land-based habitats and marine ecosystem function of our local waters,” Coun. Moralea Milne said. “The presentation will also provide information on how we can best protect these habitats.”

The presentation is open to all Metchosin residents but is intended for residents living on the shoreline.

“Metchosin residents have always shown themselves to be concerned stewards of both our land and water environments,” Milne said. “The presentation … will open the discussion on how Metchosin residents can best preserve the values we cherish while still enjoying our beaches and shoreline.”
