For millennia, Indigenous peoples have stewarded the lands and waters many of us now call home. From clam gardens to Garry oak meadows to subalpine berry patches, their efforts have shaped the natural environment to provide for the needs of humans and other beings.
Through Indigenous Guardian programs and sharing of deep and specialized knowledge between generations, Indigenous peoples continue to lead the way in conservation.
We invite you to celebrate these stories with us and find out how you can help create more lasting solutions for conservation now and into the future.
Beginning in May 2019, we’ll be posting new stories each week on this page and on social media. Follow Sierra Club BC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and comment on our posts with your own stories of these places with the hashtag #50Places.
