The Nature Trust of BC acquires land for vulnerable species and ecosystems in our Province. This is a big task, but it is not the only thing we do – we are also committed to ensuring future generations are able to learn about the incredible natural richness of BC.

This year has been tough on young people. So, we were delighted when a class of elementary school students visited our Cobble Hill – Sandersons Royd Conservation Property. This property was donated by Mr Sanderson, who was a teacher. He loved to walk his property which has a beautiful forest of Douglas –fir trees and a picturesque stream running through it.

These curious little scientists put together a wonderful video, including lots of questions. And The Nature Trust’s Simon Ferguson had fun replying back by video.

We know that when children experience wonder in the natural world they develop an understanding of conservation as well. Even in this world of social distance, we can still connect through our experiences in nature.

We wish to thank the British Columbia Real Estate Association for their financial support.
