Mission and Values
Greenways Land Trust is a registered charity and conservation organization that works to enhance the community through the creation and management of greenways networks, based on principles of stream and land stewardship. We act as an umbrella organization that works together with local stewardship groups, community organizations and local governments.
Greenways supports projects that work towards achieving our three program initiatives: Natural Areas Conservation, Community Outreach and the Stewardship Resource Centre. Additionally, we support the activities of streamkeepers and stewards.
Our mission is to restore, sustain and protect natural areas and critical habitats, particularly ecological and recreational greenways, for the benefit of our community.
Operating since 1996, Greenways continues to support volunteers, initiate projects and foster partnerships that work towards our goals and mission.
Greenways Land Trust is based in Campbell River, BC, on the traditional territories of the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ peoples: the Wei Wai Kum, We Wai Kai and Kwiakah First Nations. Our neighbours, the Xwémalhkwu, Tlowitsis and K’ómoks Nations, also have close connections to these lands. As the Island Health Food Hub for the Strathcona Regional District, Greenways has the privilege of working on several other Coast Salish, Kwakwaka’wakw and Nuu-chah-nulth territories. We acknowledge these territories and the traditional knowledge and guidance provided by First Nations that are so important for learning to live lightly on these lands and waters.
