What's 54 degrees North about?

54 degrees North has four series. The first documents the science and stories of climate change from local residents in the Smithers region of British Columbia. We're already facing climate impacts and are warming faster than other regions. We will need to both act and adapt. This podcast includes 6 episodes made possible from a Wetzinkwa Community Forest grant. It was recorded and produced by Nikki Skuce on unceded Witsuwit'en territory between August and November 2019. In 2020, the COVID19 pandemic highlighted the need for greater food security in the northwest. This 5-part series gathers tips and tricks from gardeners, explores programs to make growing food more accessible, and digs deeper into barriers and solutions to food security from regional food producers. The third included a follow up interview on Indigenous food sovereignty and an episode exploring the Healthy Watersheds Initiative projects in the Skeena. The latest season takes a look at salmon resilience and connections. Contact us at [email protected]
