British Columbia

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's first project in British Columbia was the acquisition of Mud Bay in 1974 — a vibrant intertidal property in Vancouver's Boundary Bay. Since then we have completed 100 projects that protect almost 1 million acres (400,000 hectares) of this province's most ecologically significant land and water. Today, the BC Region continues to work with our partners to protect and steward British Columbia's natural heritage.
