As neighbours we reduce, reuse, and recycle. We rely on each other to steward a green tomorrow.
UNES continues to speak up for best environmental and ecology in the planning of UniverCity, often the missing leg of Sustainable Planning (Education, Economy, Societal, and Environmental). UniverCity Neighbours also rely on the knowledge and expertise of our non-profit neighbours.
Stoney Creek Environmental Committee has brought back a viable spawning community in Stoney Creek. We now have hundreds of chum and coho as well as some pink and steelhead found spawning each year thanks to the efforts of Jennifer Atchinson and her streamkeepers. The endangered nooksak dace has been spotted in recent years in the lower Stoney Creek.
