Your generosity funds healthy parks and communities in some of the most beautiful, sought after regional parks in the world. Thriving parks depend on local community support and engagement. Since 2000, the Foundation has acquired land, built endowments and invested over $3 million into projects and programs in regional parks. We’ve built bat condos and restored ecologically sensitive wetlands; We’ve funded wheelchair-accessible boardwalks and funded pollinator gardens; We’ve helped bees, trees, whales, snails, frogs, bogs, lakes and snakes. All of our good news is because of donors like YOU.
In the last year alone, donations funded:
field trip participants (ranging everywhere from new immigrants, to senior centres to kindergarten classes) were welcomed to the regional parks via the Bus Grant Program this year. Many for the first time!
native trees and plants were planted in 2021 via the Foundations and CreativeBC’s REEL Earth Day Challenge. 3,350kg of invasive species were removed and a total of 5.1 hectares were restored and protected.
CTS Youth Society participants gained access to an otherwise unattainable summer camp experience this year, packed with a summer of laughter, friendship and outdoor education; completely free of charge to all registrants.
Take a look and see what you helped achieve.
