In honour of Earth Month, we are launching our Nature Stewards Program! Over the last several months we have been working with members of the Penelakut First Nation, Elder Augie Silvester and Ken Thomas, and local Island Trustee, Doug Fenton to develop materials to encourage residents to play an active role in conserving, stewarding, and enhancing wildlife habitat on their property. Although many islanders already do this, the program would like to recognize their efforts while helping everyone do a bit more for our island’s sensitive ecology and boost biodiversity!
