  • Interior Watershed Task Force

    The Interior Watershed Task Force is a coalition of more than twenty NGOs, Community Organizations, and Professionals that was initiated in 2023.  The IWTF advocates for the legal protection and preservation of water, primary and natural forests, wildlife and critical habitats in the BC interior. We are based in the Okanagan region of BC and respectfully live and work on ancestral territories of several First Nations.

  • Presentation by Jennifer Houghton to IWTF's Future of Our Forests townhall meeting

    After her Grand Forks home flooded in 2017 and 2018, Jennifer became involved in reforming forestry in BC. She co-founded Boundary Forest Watershed Stewardship Society along with a small group of locals concerned about the damage from industrial logging to local ecosystems. Jennifer has filmed the effects of the flooding on local people. She was lead organizer of Forest March BC, forestry summits, and runs the Facebook group BC Forestry Reform. She continues to speak, present, and collaborate with BC grassroots groups to drive for forest management to prioritize ecosystems and local communities rather than corporate profits.
