For the first time since 2007, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) held its annual general meeting in Cranbrook.  The National Board of Directors of Canada’s largest conservation organization gathered at St. Eugene over the weekend past to set the course for conservation strategy for the coming year. Their goal is to protect habitat for at least a quarter of Canada’s species at risk, by securing private land that connects with wildlife corridors, or parks, making southeastern B.C. an important territory.
