Remembrance Day long weekend marked the first Take Back the Wild conservation training summit designed for seniors. Sixteen aspiring conservationists joined us from across the South Okanagan-Similkameen to learn from local leaders in conservation, engage in dialogue on key components of campaign planning, and to inspire and celebrate regional conservation in action. Our Community Engagement Coordinator Alana tells all about it in our new blog.
