Yellowhead Ecological Association (YEA)
History of the Yellowhead Ecological Association


The YEA has been involved in the care of the North Thompson for over 30 years as it began in 1971. When there was a plan to dam the Clearwater River, one of the last free running major rivers in BC, the YEA was there to protest. When the plan was afoot to take, by tunnel, water out of the N. Thompson and put it into the Columbia system, the YEA was again there to protest and stop this travesty. And, best of all, in the late 70’s the YEA spearheaded the fight to start the Judicial Enquiry into Uranium Mining in BC which resulted in the moratorium being placed on such activities in BC.
