Who We Are

Home » Piq kiʔláwnaʔ (White Grizzly) » Who We Are

The Wild Connection is a diverse coalition of partners and allies, organized by a local group of citizens who care about healthy communities and ecosystems now and into the future. We are young people, families, and seniors. We are Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. We are recreationists – hikers, bikers, skiers, ATVers, and snowmobilers. We are wildcrafters, hunters, photographers, and landscape artists. 

We are the people who care deeply about this place, and work to protect our strong sense of community and the natural environment that defines us.

Our rural communities are small but mighty, and The Wild Connection campaign represents our dedication to a vision of a healthy ecosystem, community, and economy, in right relationship with the land. We believe that local people should create their own vision and plan for their future. We have formed in response to the threats to this region, and are advocating for landscape level planning to ensure this region and all its inhabitants can truly thrive.

Where We Are

We are located in the Central Selkirk Mountains of B.C., near the communities of New Denver, Silverton, Kaslo and surrounding areas.
