To help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, SCBC and Give Green Canada are highlighting stewardship champions who have made a difference in their communities and backyards. Our latest Stewardship Champion is Ryan Christie.
“I love that my business can protect waterfront properties while also creating natural shorelines that support local plants, animals and fish.”
Ryan Christie and his father have been doing shoreline work with their business, Parksville Heavy Equipment, for 25 years. Over the years, Ryan saw the traditional approach to protecting waterfront properties with sea walls and other structures fail to do their job.
After learning about SCBC’s Green Shores program, he has become a strong proponent of this ecological approach to shoreline development.
