Please join us for the next presentation in the Cabinet Purcell Mountain Corridor (CPMC) Webinar Series.

Gwen Bridge, Y2Y’s new Manager of Strategic Engagement, has been working on environmental protection and management for over 17 years. 

Webinar Description:

The Columbia Headwaters is located in the heart of the Canadian Columbia River drainage. This area is the northern part of the larger Y2Y focus area of the Cabinet-Purcell Mountain Corridor, an important linkage area between the Salmon Selway Bitterroot Area and Canada’s National Parks.

There are several important focuses for conservation in this region. The area contains key parts of the habitat for the Endangered Mountain Caribou, Wolverine (Special Concern in Canada) and the Western Population of Grizzly Bear (Special Concern). Additionally, the area is projected to be an area where the interior wet belt, characterized by high snow falls, will continue to exist on the land base as climate change progresses.

Unique ecosystem functions, including hydrological, may have the chance to be conserved and restored in this area if the threats from forestry, road building and mechanized recreational access are mitigated.
