Highway One widening has led to a new culvert installation at Yorkson Creek, just in time for salmon spawning in Fall 2019.
BC Nature has declared a climate emergency
BC Nature joins the young people of the world in demanding urgent action to address the climate crisis. We look to our municipal, provincial and federal governments to enact policies that address carbon emissions from government, industrial, agricultural, housing, and transportation sectors, and mitigate atmospheric carbon by designating and protecting more natural areas. In addition, policies must address education that promotes individual measures that reduce our carbon footprints.
BC Nature (the Federation of BC Naturalists) represents more than 50 naturalists’ clubs and 6000 members province-wide. Our membership consists of dedicated naturalists and scientists who are connected to, have expertise in, and concern for the preservation of British Columbia’s landscapes and the diversity of organisms that inhabit them. On October 5, 2019, at our Fall General Meeting on the occasion of our 50th anniversary, members accepted a motion to immediately publicize our position on the climate crisis.
