Summer 2018:Monitoring Conservation Lands with volunteers

“Over the summer, we met volunteers from numerous fields;  biologists, psychologists, lawyers, hospitality professionals, biochemists, environmentalists, and anthropologists – all joined together with a common appreciation for and desire to protect the world around us. Every individual person has a different reason to come out into the field on a summer day to wander around in the woods. The variety of experiences, motivations, and knowledges in this community makes our conservation work stronger and more successful.”

Wildlife Corridor in the Clear!

“In March we acquired an 11.2 hectare property that extends a sensitive wetland and launched a fundraising campaign to protect a further 4 hectares of wildlife corridor for migratory mammals in Clearwater. Thanks to the enthusiastic support of TLC members and donors, I am happy to report that we have reached our goal! TLC now protects a combined 46 hectares of wetland, forest and meadow corridor in the Clearwater River Valley.

“Working closely with lichenologist Trevor Goward, TLC founder and naturalist Briony Penn, and Lyn Baldwin and Nancy Flood of Thompson Rivers University (TRU), TLC is now working to establish a nature mentoring program on our lands. TRU owns an adjacent property that features a refurbished schoolhouse, cookhouse, and rustic camping site. Utilizing these facilities, TLC will be launching a new educational program starting next summer.”
