Event: Save BC's Endangered Old-Growth Forest!

On January 11, join us at Patagonia Vancouver to find out how you can help save BC's endangered rainforest. Come hear about First Nation-led land use planning in Ahousaht territory, Clayoquot Sound. Take part in a conversation about the state of the forest and the solutions that are possible.

Art as a gateway to action

Louis Bockner is a BC-based photographer with a big heart. Twice now, he has traveled north to the Peace River Valley to photograph the people and places threatened by the looming Site C dam project. With the BCUC review of Site C happening right now, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with Louis and hear more about his first-hand experiences in the Peace.

Time Out(side!)

Just over one year ago Laura Hope became a mother. Not only did she feel the need (and desire) to get outside with her son as often as possible, but it also crystallized her commitment to doing all she can so that he can inherit a healthy, safe, livable planet. Join Laura in spending this #OctoberOutdoors.

Welcome back to a new school year!

Our Environmental Educators, Kirsten and Amira, delivered over 200 workshop during the 2016/17 school year to nearly 5000 students at 74 different schools in 18 school districts across the province! 

The People vs. Kinder Morgan

At the forefront of the fight against Kinder Morgan are Indigenous peoples standing up to this corporate bully on land, in the water, and in the court room. Join Sierra Club BC for nine days of solidarity with First Nations fighting Kinder Morgan in court.

Site C dam: The wrong choice for BC's energy future

BC is at a crossroads. The choice our government makes on the Site C dam will impact our energy future and our hydro bills for generations to come. We can't afford Site C and with the BCUC finally reviewing the project, the government has an opportunity to choose a different path. But will they take it?

Spend Your #OctoberOutdoors!

#OctoberOutdoors is a fun way to get you, your family, and your friends outside every day for the month of October while raising funds for the big picture work that Sierra Club BC is doing to defend nature and confront climate change.

Sierra Club BC applauds Province's Kinder Morgan announcement

Sierra Club BC welcomes and applauds today’s announcement. The provincial government was elected on a promise to use every tool available to stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline and the threat of a seven-fold increase in bitumen tankers on our coast. Today’s announcement is a serious and considered first step to fulfilling that promise.

Now’s our chance for smarter environmental and energy reviews

Right now, we’ve got a once-in-a-generation opportunity to raise our voices for stronger environmental protections. The federal government is reviewing key laws and processes. This will impact Canada’s environmental and energy decisions for years to come. Please add your voice. Together we can let our MPs know we care about making these changes!

It doesn’t have to be a carbon offset

It’s summer, and that means a lot of travel for families and communities. Have you considered buying carbon credits to offset some of your emissions? As an alternative, consider supporting Sierra Club BC’s work toward lasting protection of Vancouver Island’s carbon-rich endangered old-growth rainforest.
