Clean Air

Wood Stove Exchange Program

The Ministry of Environment and Wildsight, in partnership with the RDEK and municipalities in the region, offered a Wood Stove Exchange program from 2008-2015. During that time, over 250 old stoves were changed out in the region, with a goal of improving air quality. This program ended in our region in October 2015.

Kootenay Carshare Cooperative

Our branch helped bring the original Kootenay Carshare to Kimberley. The Carshare program is researching innovative ways to bring the program back to Kimberley and Cranbrook! For more information check out www.carsharecoop.ca.

Building a Low Carbon Future

In 2015-2016, Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook prepared a presentation entitled Building A Low Carbon Future, covering the basics of climate science and climate data and details in carbon emissions in Canada, BC, and locally.  Thank you to the Columbia Basin Trust Environmental Initiatives Program for making this project possible.
