Golden

Our vision for our community and our landscape

We envision a resilient and vibrant Columbia Headwaters: healthy creeks, streams, rivers, and wetlands; teeming aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity; productive and diverse forests that support wildlife connectivity, recreation, and sustainable forestry; and clean air for all to breathe and share. We envision a Golden community where people are engaged on important ecological issues and value wilderness conservation.
 

Our main objectives

Wildsight Golden’s main objective is to work to maintain biodiversity and healthy human communities in and around our region. Our focus is on protecting the high ecological values of the Columbia headwaters region, which continues to be one of the richest and most biologically diverse regions in the world. We participate effectively in government and community processes to promote the protection of clean air, forests, water, and overall biodiversity.
 
We work in partnership with Wildsight Regional and other Wildsight branches on several of our initiatives. We also work on strengthening ties with other sector groups in the community to ensure that environmental protection is supported by a broad constituency.

Join us!

There are plenty of projects and ideas for people to work on and we welcome new members. If you are interested in learning more about us or about how you can get involved, please join us at one of our monthly branch meetings.
