It has been less than a year since we launched our campaign to permanently protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest and together we have already raised over $2 million.
As we move into the last thirty days of our collaborative campaign to purchase and protect this 45 acre forest, we are reflecting on all of the reasons why conserving this habitat and others like it is so important.
To celebrate the end of the year, we are so happy to be able to offer matching campaigns on two of our most urgent fundraising initiatives.
With an approved development plan in place, a road already built, and 15 wells drilled, the “Harbour Hill Subdivision” would have soon claimed this piece of maturing coastal forest and wetland that had so far managed to escape development.
We are thrilled to announce a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest.
EcoFair provided opportunities for land based education.
Over the past ten months, Raincoast and the Pender Islands Conservancy have raised $1,445,656.46 to protect this special place and secure, in perpetuity, an old growth forest.
Unlike industry-led expos, which generally feature products and business pitches, EcoExpo will be a chance to interact with conservation leaders from across the Salish Sea Region.
PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ or “The Blossoming Place” is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides participatory education opportunities about traditional and healthy food systems to contribute to the restoration and revitalization of native ecosystems in W̱SÁNEĆ homelands.
The Evening Gala Fundraiser has been planned as an evening of networking and celebration.
We have until the end of the year to reach our target.
