BC Nature works to protect biodiversity, species at risk, parks and other natural areas throughout the province. Our members participate in many groups that help shape public policy on our environment. Our member clubs are at the forefront of many conservation and stewardship projects.
Since becoming a registered society in 1969, we have been working towards the goals of education and conservation, reflected in our motto: “To Know Nature and Keep It Worth Knowing”.
BC Nature is very active in conservation work around the province. Focus areas for action include parks and protected areas, species at risk, Important Bird & Biodiversity Areas and the Fraser River estuary. Read our latest 2013 Conservation Report.
BC Nature policy on conservation issues is established by resolutions to the annual general meeting, presented by individuals and clubs. Resolutions for the following years are available for downloading: 1995-2005, 2006-2008, 2009, 2010,2011
Conservation activities such as letter writing, petitions or meetings with government staff and ministers are coordinated by BC Nature’s Conservation Committee, under the direction of the BC Nature executive. Club members are encouraged to bring local conservation issues to the attention of this committee.
All BC Nature members are welcome to participate in discussions on conservation issues and policy, and to receive conservation action alerts through the BC Nature Conservation Network. To link with this email network, contact the BC Nature office.
