The SWSS membership is active; working through a variety of initiatives to increase the health of the Salmo River Watershed and the larger international Columbia Basin. We believe that community involvement is an important ingredient in successful resource conservation.  It is the mandate of our society to “form collaborative partnerships with private landowners, public agencies, private forestry operations, as well as First Nations, industry and other interested parties and active groups”.

In balancing the Stewardship Triad of social, economic and environmental resources, SWSS focuses and works toward building up the environmental component in our community in a quest for long-term sustainability.
