We did it - all thanks to you!
2020 was a tough year on many fronts. But as the year came to a close, one thing became absolutely clear – the conservation community in BC is stronger than ever!
By the end of the year, The Nature Trust reached our fundraising goals and secured our two priority projects. Princeton Grasslands – MapleCross Meadow Phase II (963 acres), and Salmon River – Tidal Slough (35 acres).

To see video tours of these properties and learn more about their ecological significance, please visit Press Releases on our News and Events page and follow the links.
Meteor Strikes Nature Trust Property
We can now add meteorite hunting to the list of low-impact activities occurring on Nature Trust Properties. Last summer a fireball lit the sky above the Rocky Mountains. Scientists from the University of Calgary tracked the meteor’s trajectory and believe that it may have left meteorites on the our Hoodoos property in the Kootenay. 

“I nearly fell off my chair when I got the call,” Said Kootenay Land Manager Chris Bosman. “This is the first time I’ve ever received a call that a meteor may have hit a property we manage.”

The Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Calgary issued a press release about the event which you can access here.
Wanted: Extra Hands on Auction
We want to make this golden year our best fundraising year ever!

Our major fundraising event – our fall gala and auction – will be virtual again this year. The bright side of a virtual gala is that everyone who wants to attend can, we have a great show planned and watching is absolutely FREE. Likewise, everyone can participate in our online auction and the online format makes bidding a lot of fun. If you are interested in donating to this fundraiser, or know someone who is, please contact Elvira or Deb.

Mark in your calendar: Celebrating 50 Years Virtual Gala and Auction

Virtual Gala: October 6

Auction: September 22 to October 6
