Our Mandate

The KCP Mandate is to coordinate and facilitate conservation efforts on private land, and to generate the support and resources needed to maintain this effort.

KCP does not directly pursue conservation projects. Rather, as a partnership, KCP supports its members to pursue activities that help realize shared goals.

Our Vision

The KCP vision is to have landscapes in the Kootenays that sustain naturally functioning ecosystems that can in turn support economic and social well-being. We envision vibrant communities that demonstrate the principles of environmental stewardship for future generations.

Our Purpose

Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) is a broad partnership of land and water conservation and stewardship groups, government agencies, resource industries, and agricultural producers working throughout the East and West Kootenays.
The partnership seeks to cooperatively conserve the biological diversity and naturally functioning ecosystems of the region while providing mutual project support and leveraging technical and financial resources.

Together we’re taking care of our natural landscapes and our Kootenay way of life.
