Invermere

The Invermere branch of Wildsight has been the environmental voice of the upper Columbia Valley since 1989. We are a BC registered non-profit organization, governed by an engaged Board of Directors and supported by an active membership and community of volunteers. We reach 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 including workshops, notable speakers (like David Suzuki), inspiring films, as well as undertake large initiatives such as Pesticide Free Invermere, Wilmer wetlands clean-up and the Lake Enid Restoration Project. We work together with Wildsight Regional and the five other Wildsight branches.

Our current initiatives include developing rural Canada’s first all-electric vehicle share program –Spark – and implementing our core environmental community engagement program, Wild Connections. As part of Wild Connections, our 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival took place on November 21, 2020 in its live-streamed virtual format. The Fest will return on November 20, 2021!
