LETTERS: Stewardship our priority

Editor:

As a community, we have recognized that there are significant consequences to losing access to the beach.

Fighting for the right to access the beach gives us the opportunity to take on the responsibility of stewardship of the vital habitats and ecosystems that enrich all life on the Peninsula.

Thank you to Birds on the Bay, Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society, and all its many partners who continue to provide outstanding programs of stewardship and education, such as Beach Heroes, Shorekeepers, eelgrass and marine creatures workshops and stream-restoration programs.

Funding for responsible stewardship of our beaches and the surrounding waters should be a priority for our community.

S. Watkins, White Rock
