Raincoast and the Pender Islands Conservancy have teamed up with local grassroots groups, Penderpod and Pender Earth, to organize a weekend full of conservation, restoration, education, and fun. Events will include a big tree hunting blitz, restoration activities such as tree planting, guided mycology and nature walks, a silent auction, and more!
Any proceeds raised throughout the weekend will support the permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest.
Over the next two months we will hope to receive donations for our silent auction. We welcome local businesses, artists, and makers to connect with us if they are interested in supporting our conservation work. We also welcome environmentally-focused organizations to contact us if they are interested in hosting an information booth.
The theme of the Eco-Fair is trees to seas and it is open to Pender Island residents and visitors of all ages. Additional details will be available in coming weeks.
