GROWING THE PARTNERSHIP
Given the success of EKCP, and the desire for a similar approach in the West Kootenay, our service area expanded to include the West Kootenay region. In 2012, we became Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP), formally recognizing the connection between the East and West Kootenay. More than just a new name, we also gained the opportunity to support new partners, address unique regional challenges and help conserve different ecosystems.
We are now a partnership of 85 organizations, all working towards a collaborative vision. As our partnership continues to grow, our priorities remain the same, a commitment to: land conservation, stewardship, sharing knowledge, building financial tools, and the network.
