Last Wednesday, CPAWS-BC had the privilege of attending Vancity’s enviroFund celebration at the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Thanks to Vancity, CPAWS-BC has received funding to help protect sensitive ecosystems on Bowen Island, an important project we couldn’t complete without their support.

It was a fantastic evening – we were able to learn about other award recipients’ projects through interesting presentations and plenty of mingling. In total, Vancity gave out more than half a million dollars to 15 organizations – an impressive amount of funding that we learned will all go to excellent use!

Thank you, Vancity, for both a wonderful evening and for continuing to support such important environmental work throughout British Columbia.
