A long-term resident and avid sportsman with a broad-based environmental background, Rick Allen is a fixture in the conservation community of the Columbia Basin.

For the past 5 years he has been the face of CBT’s Environment Program. Through his role as Environment Program Manager, Rick enjoys seeing a great diversity of environmental projects being delivered around the Basin. One of the highlights of his work is the opportunity to meet the passionate people involved. “I get excited about each and every project, whether it’s the acquisition of a conservation property or important stewardship work”.

Rick has enjoyed seeing the Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) evolve and flourish, and believes that without it there wouldn’t be nearly the amount of priority conservation property being protected. The acquisition of Lot 48 was a highlight for him and one that he feels is a real testament to collaboration which is one of the tenets upon which CBT is built.

The Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) has been a strong supporter of the KCP since its inception. CBT works with KCP partners towards achieving the long-term stewardship of our natural resources, and taking action to meet environmental challenges.
