Roads and Wilderness: Documentaries and Discussion on the Beaver River Watershed


This August, Randi Newton from CPAWS Yukon, members from the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun, artists, photographers, and long time Yukoners canoed the Beaver and Stewart Rivers. They set off to document this unspoiled wilderness and share what could be lost if the region is opened up by a proposed 65 km mining exploration road.


At this Conservation Conversation we'll talk about wilderness and roads and watch two mini-docs on the 10-day, 379 km Beaver River paddling trip. Most importantly, we'll discuss what people can do to secure a strong future for the Beaver River Watershed and how we can prevent roads from transforming other wilderness landscapes.
