Stephanie Wood’s recent Narwhal feature Meet the Cheakamus, the only community forest to develop carbon offsets in B.C. offers readers a lovely, storied journey through the challenges and successes of the Cheakamus Community Forest. Brinkman Earth Systems was intimately involved in developing the Cheakamus Community Forest project, and we still support and work with the community today.
Stephanie Kwetásel'wet Wood is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh journalist and natural storyteller. Stephanie’s calm comprehensive approach brings the elements of what is possible for the Narwhal’s Carbon Cache series of in-depth features on natural climate solutions. Stephanie also captures the legacy of pre-contact Indigenous Stewardship in her sharing of the rich qualities of living biomes and connectivity, making this a beautiful article. We are proud to be part of creating Cheakamus forest’s unique climate project, and pleased to have a great picture of Robert Seaton, our Chief Science Officer featured.
