For thousands of years, First Nations people along the Pacific North Coast have cared for the wildlife and ecosystems that are a part of their communities.

The Coastal Guardian Watchmen are the modern version of that ancient tradition; they work together to monitor, protect and restore the cultural and natural resources of their Nations, upholding their Nation’s laws and the traditions passed down from their ancestors.

CSN supports the Coastal Guardian Watchmen by helping to produce outreach materials, including flags, uniforms and brochures that highlight rules and regulations within each Nation’s territory, and by providing extensive technical and training support and help with work planning, safety policies and procedures, and team development.

The Coastal Stewardship Network supports the regional stewardship efforts of Coastal Guardian Watchmen by facilitating monthly conference calls and organizing annual gatherings and learning exchanges that bring Guardians together to build relationships, and share information and experiences.
