Imagining Gabriola’s Land and Sea 2050
What do you envision Gabriola’s environment will be like in 2050, when the current kindergarten kids are 30? How will we get there? These were the big ideas that 76 islanders talked about at the community hall on January 20th. The environment focused Visioning 2050 event was funded by Islands Trust and organized by GaLTT’s Community Engagement committee in collaboration with GROWLS (Gabriola Rescue of Wildlife Society) and the Gabriola Island Memorial Society. It generated many ideas, and the consolidated responses have been sent to Islands Trust for their consideration when redoing Gabriola’s Official Community Plan.

Thanks to Erin Udal and Dyan Dunsmoor-Farley who led and recorded our session, Liz Ciocea and Dar Mace of GROWLS for helping to organize and the many volunteers who shovelled the parking lot, served delicious Ground Up snacks and helped with take down. Volunteerism is alive and well on Gabriola!
