Our Annual General Meeting 2019 takes place at 7 pm on Monday, October 28, 2019 at the home of Malaspina Land Conservancy Society in Powell River, BC. If you would like to attend, please send us a message through this website or through email at info@malaspinaland.ca and we will send you more details and the agenda package.

This year’s invited guest will be Jasper Lament, CEO of Nature Trust BC. The Nature Trust holds land within the Powell River area, and this is an opportunity to find out what the Nature Trust does, as one of BC’s largest land conservation organizations, as well as explore ways MLCS and the Nature Trust may be able to collaborate.

We hope you can join us, if you are in this area. This is a time to renew your membership and consider joining our board.

50 free memberships!

From the Powell River Peak:

Free membership is being offered for one of Powell River’s newest charities. Malaspina Land Conservancy Society (MLCS) has received a gift from a generous member who has pledged to sponsor the first 50 new members of the society for one year.

The gift is provided to increase public recognition of MLCS and involve more people in its development.

MLCS was formed to assist private land owners, whether individuals, industry or businesses, with decisions relating to the preservation and conservation of their land. “We do this by holding an interest in the land,” said MLCS President Janet Alred. An interest could take the shape of ownership, or a conservation covenant that is placed on a specific area of the property.

The mission of MLCS is the protection of land of natural, agricultural, scenic, recreational or historic value. “We are particularly interested in riparian areas, old growth forest and areas of biological diversity,” said Alred. “Overall, we share a vision of people living within a healthy diverse region where respect for the natural world is paramount.”

Members of the society are invited to participate in field trips to locally preserved land, will have the opportunity to learn about land restoration and can help on many projects, including committees such as membership, public engagement, fundraising and land.

Memberships cost $10 annually for individuals, $30 for organizations and $100 for businesses. “We are able to offer free individual memberships to the first 50 people to join us for the first time. This is an exciting time to join as members can really play a part in the society’s development. We are already in conversation with various land owners about their properties and anticipate launching fundraising campaigns in the near future to preserve land for the local community.”

MLCS will have an information table at the Powell River Film Festival on Thursday, February 17 through Saturday, February 19 at Powell River Recreation Complex.

Yes, you read that right… thanks to our very generous member for a great idea! Here’s to all our new members.
