People in the Kootenays value fish and wildlife and their habitats, clean water and aquatic systems, and open spaces like grasslands. Local governments play a key role in protecting these values.

On March 13th, 2019 in Creston, Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) delivered a forum for local government elected officials and staff on tools for conservation in the Kootenays. This forum showcased examples of how local governments have successfully integrated conservation into their activities as well as explore local tools, resources, and needs of local government in the Kootenays.

The goal of this Forum was to identify specific tools/resources required by local governments of the Kootenays to integrate conservation principles into planning. The workshop showcased examples of voluntary and regulatory tools that have been used in B.C. to promote conservation in local government activities.
