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.
The community of Wildsight Golden acknowledge that we are working on the unceded territory of the Ktunaxa and Secwepemc peoples. We will seek out and listen to the stories and wisdom that the Ktunaxa, Secwepemc and Metis peoples have to share and work towards reconciliation as a basic tenant of our work.
