Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP)

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. KCP partner organizations seek to cooperatively conserve and steward landscapes that sustain naturally functioning ecosystems. The mandate of KCP is to coordinate and facilitate these conservation efforts on private land, and generate the support and resources needed to maintain this effort. KCP has four main priorities: increasing the effectiveness, collaboration and coordination of private land securement; increasing the effectiveness and coordination of stewardship activities taking place on private lands; building financial and technical capacity of partner organizations; and serving as a network to achieve efficiencies, synergies and ultimately greater effectiveness. Organizations must apply and be approved as partners.
