SHARING KNOWLEDGE, BUILDING FINANCIAL TOOLS
Our partners are committed to the conservation and stewardship of private land, and we are committed to supporting their activities.
One of the ways we do this is by creating opportunities for partners to share technical knowledge and skills with one another, through field tours and gatherings, webinars and online workshops. Whether it’s sharing best management practices, restoration techniques, or approaches to climate adaptation – we seek topics that respond to the evolving needs of our partnership and find ways to connect expertise.
Beyond knowledge, a limiting factor for many projects is the cost. With this in mind, in partnership with the Regional District of East Kootenay KCP made history by establishing the first Local Conservation Fund in Canada’s history. Launched in 2010, the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund provides funding to local conservation projects and has since become a model for other regions. In 2014 KCP and the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) created the RDCK Local Conservation Fund.
