What's Up at EKOS Communications?

Forest Scene

June 11, 2010: As many of you know, seven months ago I took on a new challenge, that as Manager of Communications and Engagement with Ocean Networks Canada. This is a full-time gig for the next three - four years and possibly longer. As I've mentioned in a previous blog, the opportunity to work with VENUS and NEPTUNE Canada ocean observatories to advance ocean literacy among Canadians was just too great of an opportunity to pass up. However, it leaves precious little time for much in the after work hours, especially since I'm also still supervising a graduate student in the Masters of Environmental Education and Communication program at Royal Roads University.

Meanwhile, Starr has gone on maternity leave with the birth of a second child; she is not likely to be able to re-engage with EKOS Communications until the late fall or winter.

As a consequence, EKOS Communications has been pretty quiet for the past while and will likely remain so until the end of the year.

Strathcona: BC's First Provincial Park
Like Banff National Park, Canada's first national park, Strathcona Provincial Park, BC's first national park, represents all that is good and bad about the province's protected area system. It has been loved and abused for almost a century. The accompanying video presents a compressed history of the significant events that have shaped the park as told by former BC Parks staff and by long-time park activists.
