*Environmental Stewardship in Langley on Display at Museum*

*Langley, BC* – People in Langley are working hard to strengthen ecosystems
in our communities. As urban development continues, residents and
organizations have stepped forward to support our valuable waterways and
natural spaces. Several of these groups have partnered with Langley
Centennial Museum in their latest exhibit, “Critical Care: Environmental
Stewardship in Langley.” These groups include Langley Environmental
Partners Society (LEPS), Little Campbell Watershed Society, Yorkson
Watershed Enhancement Society, Langley Field Naturalists, Glen Valley
Watersheds Society, Nicomekl Enhancement Society, Salmon River Enhancement
Society, Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society, and Climate Crisis Langley
Action Partners.

Through independent action and organized efforts, many Langley residents
are doing their part to preserve, protect, and enhance our local
biodiversity. The new exhibit highlights this critical care being delivered
every day in our communities, shining a spotlight on work that many
residents may not be aware of. “There are so many ways to get involved, and
the stewardship groups exhibiting here are active and can use your
support,” said Lisa Dreves, LEPS Stewardship Coordinator.

In addition to the local groups involved, a Tsawwassen documentary film
maker is also participating. Jocelyn Demers is an independent producer and
the owner of Monde Films, and his moving 2018 documentary “The Watershed
Guardians of the Fraser River” is playing in the gallery alongside the
current exhibit.

“From identifying your watershed on a map, watching a documentary, or
playing the “Salmon Power” board game, there’s many ways to learn more
about our ecosystems and what is being done to support them,” noted Kobi
Christian, Arts & Heritage Curator. “We hope this exhibit inspires people
to do what they can, where they can, to support our natural places. Every
little bit helps.”

LEPS will be setting up outside the museum on Saturday mornings in August
to provide even more information, and connections to their work. Visit
museum.tol.ca for more details and to book your visit, or contact
604.532.3536 or lcmbookings at tol.ca. The exhibit runs until October 3, 2021.
