Adventures at GOBC Kimberley!

Ever wonder what happens at one of our Get Outside BC summits? Read all about this fun adventure from one of our GOBC coordinators at the 2016 Kimberley summit in Kokanee Creek Provincial Park!

One Youth’s Journey into Conservation

Meet Michele Walter, whose boundless enthusiasm for connecting people to nature has led her to our CPAWS doorstep. She has joined us this summer as our Get Outside BC Coordinator for 2016 – but her involvement with us traces back to 2014, when she was first a participant in our GOBC project, and then 2015 as our GOBC Assistant, helping to plan and facilitate the summit.

Meet our Wild Ambassadors for 2016

The Wild Ambassador project is a volunteer driven initiative, where volunteers from all regions across the province encourage and facilitate community members to spend more time outside enjoying parks, nature and wild spaces. We would like to introduce you to some of 2016’s Wild Ambassadors!

Forests, Certification and Consent

This week the National Aboriginal Forestry Association (NAFA) is hosting an important event in Ottawa, on “Free Prior and Informed Consent and Indigenous Forests: Landscapes, Certification and Nationhood.” Although I was unable to attend, this event gave rise to some thoughts that I wanted to share, as I have been working on this issue for some time.

Challenges of a new wildlife technologist

We've checked in with one of our Take Back the Wild leaders, who joined us in Johnson's Landing for the Kootenay region summit last year. Blaire Smith is now undertaking her second year in Recreation, Fish, and Wildlife Technology student at Selkirk College, and is working on a project to study Canada lynx in the Rossland area in BC. Read about Blaire's account of working out in the field to promote the knowledge and protection of our wildlife!
