We are changing our email address. This sounds easy, however, the process will take a while and we ask you to bare with us. Our old address of info@malaspinaland.ca is changing to malaspinalandinfo@gmail.com. So, as we go through this transition, if you see our old email on one of our pages or documents, please know that it will be changed as we get to it. You’re always welcome to notify us, via our new email, just in case we miss that occurrence. ­čÖé

Thank you!

We invite you to our 2022 AGM Sunday, December 4, 7 pm. It will be held in person here, in Powell River. If you would like to attend, please email us at malaspinalandinfo@gmail.com. This is a new email address; we will also be monitoring the old one until December 31, 2022.

Before the AGM, we are co-sponsoring a documentary, “The Seeds of Vandana Shiva,” on Saturday, November 5, 2022 1.30 pm at the Patricia Theatre in Powell River. Vandana Shiva is an eco-activist and the documentary focuses on her lifelong pursuit of the right to grow food. As an “agro-activist” she battles corporations to bring control of the food system back into the hands of everyday people.

We anticipate holding another Ted Talks Through Trees event around Earth Month 2023, where we provide Douglas fir seedlings to property owners around the qathet region. Our most recent Newsletter provides more information about this endeavour, which began in 2020 and honours Ted Crossley who served many years on our board and died in September 2019.

Please join us for the 2014 annual general meeting for Malaspina Land Conservancy Society. It will be held at 7.30 pm on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 3852 Gordon Avenue, Powell River BC. If you intend to attend, please drop us an email at info@malaspinaland.ca so we can send you the AGM information.

It has admittedly been a while since this website was last updated. This speaks to a need for more members to join our organization and to take a position on the board. We welcome anyone and everyone to share in preserving land for the generations who follow. We have committees already formed and are open to new committees for new projects as members with ideas come along and share.

A copy of our minutes of any of the previous annual general meetings up to 2013 is available if you contact us. After our 2014 AGM, the 2013 minutes will also be available. These are a good way of catching up on how the society has been progressing since it first began in the spring 2008.

But, the best way of finding out more is to attend our 2014 AGM. This year we assisted with Earth Week Powell River, an initiative which closely matches our own mission of protecting land. We have also formed into a close alliance with local land trusts and similar organizations in the Salish Sea area. We are actively interested in preserving Stillwater Bluffs, an iconic landscape south of Powell River where coastal bluffs sport a mixture of coastal Douglas fir and coastal western hemlock ecosystems.

To vote on any issues at the AGM you need to be a member in good standing for the year 2013/14. If your membership has lapsed, please visit the membership renewal page on this website and renew online, or drop us an email info@malaspinaland.ca or snail mail. We will take memberships for the current year until midnight Tuesday, November 11, 2014. If you do not wish to vote at the AGM, we encourage you to renew your membership so you will be a member in good standing as we enter the 2014/15 year. Membership dues remain as always at $10 per person, $30 per non-profit organization and $100 per corporation/business.

We hope you will join us on November 18, and if unable, then please join us as a member for the 2014/15 year. Thank you.
