Everything you may want to know about eel grass

It's a marine environment that has become a pretty controversial topic over the last few years, as eel grass took the central discussion point when it comes to LNG development plans around Lelu Island and other proposed locations for terminal projects.

Yet there's a good chance, that not that many in the community actually know much about the Marine meadows and the eco-structure that it supports, or its role in the marine environment of the North Coast.

That however is something that you can take care of later tonight at Northwest Community College, with a timely contribution to the Vancouver Aquarium's North Coast Initiative Speaker's Series, that takes place through the support of BG Canada.

Tonight the North Coast Initiative is hosting an evening discussion on the topic of marine meadows, eel grass and other aspects of the estuaries of the region.

Aaron Eger will be the guide, the Maters Candidate at the University of Victoria has been studying Chatham Sound. Tonight's opportunity will provide the scientific and educational review at the news making part of the ocean shorelines.
