I’ve lived in the West Kootenays for 25 years and I believe we are some of the lucky few that still have an incredible thriving ecosystem that is alive with wild animals, forests, fresh water and air. As the world changes in frightening ways, more and more people are beginning to realize what an amazing and enriching gift a healthy environment is for our children and for ourselves.

I joined the board of the West Kootenay EcoSociety because I want to see our environment well cared for, because I want our valley to be healthy for us and for the other wild beings that live here, and because I believe we all need to pitch in to make this place the healthy home we want it to be.​

Will you protect our wildspaces, like Alon, and join as an EcoSociety member today?
