Nature Trust of British Columbia
The Nature Trust of British Columbia is the oldest and largest provincial land trust in BC. We acquire ecologically significant land usually through purchase or donation. Then we care for this land in order to protect nature with its diversity of wildlife and plants, and their critical habitats.
We are a non-profit, non-advocacy group that seeks a balance between sustaining our environment and sustaining our economy. Collaboration is a hallmark of The Nature Trust’s many years of working with local communities throughout BC.
Since 1971 The Nature Trust of BC has acquired over 175,000 acres across the province including key estuaries and riverside lands, including along
- the Englishman River and Salmon River on Vancouver Island,
- the Fraser River and Chehalis River in the Lower Mainland,
- the Adams River in the Interior,
- the Lakelse Lake and the Stellako River in the North
- and the Columbia River in the Kootenays.
“I’ve never seen a river that I could not love.”
Roderick Haig-Brown, Past Director of The Nature Trust of BC
