Wildsight Creston Valley engages and inspires the local community. We host passionate speakers throughout the year on a wide range of topics including wildlife and the region’s landscape.
Our branch is a member of the Creston Valley Community Forest Corporation, keeping control of our watersheds and employment in the hands of the community. The community forest has adopted eco-forestry recommendations made by the Silva Foundation. We are concentrating on selective logging techniques such as single tree harvesting, shelter wood, and small group selection in which open cuts are never more than two tree heights in diameter.
During 2019 we worked with the Selkirk Community College and funding from Yellowstone-to-Yukon to produce a Green Map for the Creston Valley that highlighted areas in the valley that are of high ecological value. For more information, please visit the Creston Valley Green Map project. We are now following up on recommendations from the Green Map project.
Thank You to the funders that made our 2020 programs possible!
