Conservation


The BCWF’s Youth Program is coming to the Dawson Creek Sportsman’s Club this year with the Go Wild! Youth for Conservation Camp from July 10-14, 2017. Themed around conservation and leadership, this weeklong day camp for youth ages 13-17 is a perfect fit for those who enjoy the outdoors and want to gain leadership skills. Go Wild aims to inspire an interest in environmental stewardship and empower youth to take on a leadership role in their communities. Youth will also learn outdoor skills such as fire and shelter building. The cost is $50 + registration fees ($53.60 total).

BCWF Conservation App Logo

Available to iPhone users, the new Conservation App makes it easy for users to take geo-referenced, time-stamped photos or videos and to report issues related to illegal use, or abuse, of natural resources. The app works both in and out of service areas using the phone’s GPS.  Reports are sent to a secure server and then forwarded automatically to the appropriate enforcement agency. An Android version of the app will be available next year.
