Happy 2023! If one of your New Years Resolutions was to start planning your field work for the upcoming season, then look no further for inspiration!
Download our eBook for free to hear about how Indigenous Nations are using environmental monitoring to further stewardship efforts, assert jurisdiction, prepare for climate change, and empower citizens to protect their lands and waters.
This book is a collection of the most popular posts from our Environmental Monitoring blog series and covers everything from deciding what to monitor, why, and how to do it. Additionally, we cover lessons learned around specific monitoring situations, such as mines, pipelines, and other linear corridors.
We’ll also discuss how placing your Nation’s Indigenous Knowledge at the heart of environmental monitoring plans can create the best possible results. Finally, and perhaps most critically, we’ll explore unexpected ways to fund and build up your program now and into the future so that environmental monitors and Guardians can approach their role not as a job, but as a career.

We also include in this eBook, a primer on Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs). With the Indigenous-led conservation movement kicking into high gear across the country, we make the links between strong environmental monitoring plans and the ability to further your Nation's conservation and stewardship goals.
And, as always, this eBook rests on the many environmental monitoring programs we’ve helped build, and the many environmental monitors we’ve helped to train, in Indigenous Nations from coast to coast to coast over the past decade. We hope you find inspiration in their stories and find new ideas to add to your own plans.
