Perseverance Trail Run 2020:
This year, the amazing crew at ELM are expanding our fundraising adventure to include the entire month and the entire world is invited to participate, in the 2020 Virtual Perseverance Trail Run! The goal of this years event is once again to raise funds for the Cumberland Community Forest Society (yay!), promote community connection, physical activity and nature conservation.
Here are a few things we are looking forward to this year:
- This year the race invites local runners to run the Perseverance 11.5k or 3k courses on their own or with their family members between Oct 1-Oct 25th. Folks are encouraged to challenge themselves and friends to beat your time (and your friends;) using our virtual race segment all month long!
- We are also going to open a non-local category and you can invite your friends and family to participate and show their support for the Cumberland Forest, from anywhere in the world!
- Registration will be by donation and awards will be given to the top King, Queen, Princess and Prince of the Fundraising Forest this year!
- We will have a series of interactive virtual challenges to connect and motivate and inspire you, our Forest Friends, all month long!
We look forward to Persevering with you all, virtually, this year!

BCWF Wetlands Education Program Presents Wetland Institute Speaker Series
BCWF’s Wetlands Education Program is proud to present the Wetland Institute Speaker Series! Join us for a series of free, weekly webinars
on topics that will support wetland practitioners in conservation, restoration, and education around wetlands. Expert speakers and environmental professionals from across B.C. will be sharing their knowledge and experience in working with wetlands. This workshop turned seminar speaker series is offered only once a year and has limited seats.
The Wildwood/Ecoforest Institute Society team will expand on their approach to nature-based forestry and how it, not only protects and restores ecosystem health, but can increase employment and community engagement. This webinar comes at a critical time for the forest management in British Columbia where protecting old growth is such a critical issue.
For more information for this free webinar go to: https://creativelyunited.org/event/forests-and-nature/
Do you work with local government as staff, a stewardship group, or as partners in protection of the natural environment? Are you an elected councilor or director? This workshop is for you!
Join our conversation with experts Deborah Curran (University of Victoria, Environmental Law Centre) and Erin Gray (Arbutus Law Group LLP).
The conversation will explore how Development Permit Areas for Protection of the Natural Environment (EDPAs) can provide specific standards to support our decision-makers to further prioritize and protect ecologically sensitive areas in our current climate crisis.
Our presenters will share knowledge and local examples, as well as offer an opportunity for questions and answers.
