Working within the community to promote a healthy environment as the basis of a strong economy and vibrant society.
The Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society is best known for our Water Wise and Waste Wise programs and our regional Conservation Field Guide, and we also run Watershed Health and Sustainable Living programs.
Our instructors teach environmental education modules in the classroom and at Gavin Lake Forest Education Centre, and coordinate an annual ‘Earth Challenge’ event for all grade 7 students. We hold field trips to the Williams Lake River valley, sewage treatment plant, and landfill as well as lead storm drain painting, worm composting, and classroom gardening.
Within the community, we deliver Bikes for All and Skates for All programs, stock our root cellar with gleaned vegetables for food banks, hold xeriscape gardening workshops, and host an annual Earth Friendly Holiday Event every holiday season.
Memberships contribute to our work in two important ways: they are a reliable source of revenue to continue our work, and they give us strength in numbers. They also give you a voice at our Annual General Meeting, so you can have a say in how we work for conservation in your community. Thank you for being a part of the solution
