Why the new funding model?
The Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) has shifted their funding priorities and their strategic plan no longer includes a focus on environmental education. CBT has been a core supporter of Wildsight’s environmental education programs for over 20 years, and without their funding, the number of free environmental education programs we can offer has been drastically reduced. If you have questions about this shift or want to know how you can help to advocate for free environmental education programs in the Columbia Basin, please email education@wildsight.ca
