This was the second workshop associated with the Mid-Columbia Ecosystem Enhancement Project, and all were welcome to join in on a discussion to explore private land conservation initiatives in the North Columbia region.
Juliet Craig, program manager with the Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP), explained the various ways that private land conservation can be achieved and explored the interest in expanding KCP’s programs into the North Columbia Mountains.
Ecosystem conservation on private land is one way to protect clean water, preserve important wildlife habitat, and steward the land to allow for healthy, functioning ecosystems. Since 2002 the Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) has helped to support partners in conserving over 250,000 hectares of land and invest over $150 million into conservation projects across the east and west Kootenays.
