Our Stewardship

How we contribute to stewardship of the land

We want to conserve the environment we benefit from. That’s why we get you involved in conservation on every trip into the mountains.

the conservation work you can get involved in contributes to the stewardship of the Chilcotin Ark, an area of high biodiversity and home to a variety of animals from Grizzly bears to California Bighorn sheep to mountain goats.

Join us for species population counts

Help us record the population of each species to determine herd recruitment and impacts on the animals. These annual counts will teach you about the habitats and behaviours of the species you are studying

Record the wildlife you see in our Wildlife Sightings Form

Help us record accurate population numbers for every species we see. These forms help shape the focus of our conservation projects

Learn to identify invasive and native plants

Is burdock an invasive species? What about Canada thistle? Our mentor guides will teach you which plants are native and which are invasive. Then get involved in invasive species removal

Learn about range management with our grazing records

Learn how to record the plant diversity in our grazing meadows to ensure our horses don’t have a negative impact on the environment. Discover how this is part of our land management plans for the Chilcotin Ark
