The Land Conservancy

Usually known as TLC, The Land Conservancy is a non-profit, charitable Land Trust working throughout British Columbia. TLC protects important habitat for plants, animals and natural communities as well as properties with historical, cultural, scientific, scenic or compatible recreational value.
 Founded in 1997, TLC is modeled after the National Trust of Britain. It is a democratic organization, membership-based, and governed by an elected Board of Directors (volunteer). TLC relies on a strong membership and volunteer base to help maintain its operations.

The Land Conservancy achieves its conservation objectives by working in a non-confrontational, businesslike manner. We work with many partners, all levels of government, other agencies, businesses, community groups and individuals to ensure the broadest support for our activities. We are here for the long term. When we take properties under our care, our goal is to protect them in perpetuity.
