Protect our watershed and save our town!

The community of Ymir in southern interior BC is under threat of losing our water and our town from industrialization in our watershed forest.  The small Quartz Creek Watershed provides the only source of potable water and firefighting water for our community of ~400.

The Ymir Community Watershed Society works to protect the Quartz Creek watershed to ensure a long term potable water source for Ymir, BC.

We acknowledge and honour the Indigenous Peoples who consider our region to be their Traditional Territories.
