Join the Wilderness Committee and the Peace Valley Environment Association at this Benefit Concert to protect the beautiful Peace River Valley from the devastation of the unnecessary Site C dam!
The Wilderness Committee and PVEA support the six court challenges against the project put forth by Treaty 8 First Nations and the Peace Valley Landowner Association (PVLA). But those court challenges cost money! The PVLA is doing a great job of raising the $200,000 they need for their federal and provincial court challenges, but they're not there yet.
The importance of bees to our natural world cannot be overstated. One out of every three bites of food we eat exists because of pollinators. Bees pollinate almost 75 per cent of the vegetables, nuts and fruit grown in North America including apples, flaxseed, peaches, strawberries, carrots, pepper, avocado and almonds.
Life as we know it simply would not exist without bees, which is why their decline is so worrying!
As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been making a few changes around here lately. 2015 marks the Wilderness Committee’s 35th Anniversary, and we’ve launched a year-long celebration. One of the things that we’ve done to mark the occasion is to rename our monthly giving program. Monthly donors who previously belonged to the Wilderness Savings Plan are now members of the Wilderness Committee Trailblazers!
