Join us at the Linnaea Education Center. Everyone Welcome!

*What is a conservation covenant, how do conservation covenants positively effect land conservation and where do they occur in BC and on Cortes Island.
Learn how we are building a protected areas land base in BC and on Cortes Island; it’s all about engaged and informed landowners and landscape level connectivity!

*Ever wanted to live in community?
