Invermere

The Invermere branch of Wildsight has been the environmental voice of the upper Columbia Valley since 1989. Our non-profit organization reaches out to visitors and locals alike to inspire action and lead the way in conserving wild spaces and improving our relationship with nature. We host a variety of community events with notable speakers (like David Suzuki) and inspiring films, as well as undertaking larger initiatives such as Pesticide Free Invermere, Wilmer wetlands clean-up and the Lake Enid Restoration Project.

Our current initiatives include Climate Action and Spark Electric Vehicle Share, Radon Awareness, and Wild Connections. 

Mark down November 23 for our 6th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival in 2019. The event seeks to inspire and create dialogue about the important issues of our time. And of course, we always have fun!
