2012 Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund Projects Announced

Nine projects will receive funding from the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund in 2012.

“The Regional District of East Kootenay Board of Directors has approved a total of $216,194 in funding for projects this year,” explains RDEK Columbia Valley Directors Committee Chair, Gerry Taft. “It is encouraging to see the work that has been done over the past two years with the financial assistance of the Local Conservation Fund and we are looking forward to the progress that will be made in the coming year to help protect or enhance the ecosystems and environmental values in the Valley.”

The Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund is administered by the East Kootenay Conservation Program (EKCP) on behalf of the RDEK. A Technical Review Committee, made up of a number of Columbia Valley residents, reviews the funding applications and makes recommendations to the EKCP and RDEK.

“This Local Conservation Fund is successfully providing a locally-generated source of funding that leverages other investment in our area,” says Dave Hillary, Manager of EKCP. “Now in its third year, it has established a track record of protecting the values we care about, from conserving wetlands and grasslands to protecting water quality and special places.”

For more information on these projects, please read this announcement (pdf).
