For our Peace Valley Campaigner Galen Armstrong, thinking of the people who are most directly facing the consequences of the Site C dam is what motivates him to keep going. Even if it sometimes feels like the odds are stacked us, what we are doing makes a difference and it's still possible to stop the dam.

A new CCPA-BC report shows that between 2013 and 2016, more raw logs were shipped from BC than during any other four-year period in the province’s history, prompting two forest industry unions and three leading environmental groups to call for a ban on raw log exports from old-growth forests and bold government action to stimulate BC’s flagging forest sector.

One of my favorite things to do with a class is to read them a story. I use stories as a way to introduce myself and to share an important key message about nature and our connection as people to nature. Stories enable children to get hooked and become engaged in a program.

Completing the World’s First International Peace Park
The Flathead Valley is unmatched in North America for the variety and density of carnivores and its extraordinary diversity of plants and animals. It remains one of the last wild river basins in southern Canada. However, there are no legislated wildlife sanctuaries in the Southern Rockies.

Going Wild! Nature and Play was designed to get kindergarten students engaged and excited about nature in their own school community. What better way than to facilitate a program that allows students to explore through touching, smelling, looking and listening to unique nature items such as deer jaw bones, moon snails, bracket fungus and local native plants.
