The CBWN works with the Selkirk Geospatial Research Program at Selkirk College to assist watershed groups with mapping and geospatial research. We have two main programs, the Summer Mapping Program, and the Select Research Project program.

Applications are now OPEN for the Summer Mapping Program, until April 13, 2018. Please click here to apply.

Our first webinar of the Spring Series will focus on our Mapping Programs, how to get the most out of the Summer Mapping Program, and what’s new this year. Please click here for more information.

Summer Mapping Program

The CBWN Summer Mapping Program offers 2-4 weeks of supervised coop student support between May 15 and August 10 to watershed groups to use geographic information systems (mapping) in well-defined projects that offer great potential for involvement and communication. To see a list of proposals we chose for support in prior years, click here. We expect that all these projects will increase involvement in the watershed group either through improved community understanding or through participation in mapping or research. They could be accomplished in the short time frame of the awards. We are grateful to the Columbia Bastin Trust for their support of this program. Each year we are able to support four watershed groups with a watershed mapping project that engages their communities and increases understanding of the watersheds.
