Making our community feel at home with inclusive infrastructure

At Power To Be, we want everyone to feel included. We are proud of the adaptive and inclusive approach we use in our programming, so when the opportunity arose to build a new facility at our Prospect Lake site, we wanted to apply that same approach to our building design.

On September 17, 2022, we were honoured to invite representatives from the Coast Salish, Kwakwaka’wakw, and Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations, Power To Be staff, and over 50 guests to celebrate the unveiling of our three new totem poles at our Prospect Lake site.

Housewarming: Welcome to Our Gateway To Nature

On September 28th, Power To Be invited a group of our participants and community group partners to join us on site and celebrate our new space for a housewarming event. This occasion brought participants, volunteers, and staff together for an evening of exploration, laughter, and pizza as we gathered in a place that has come to mean so much for our organization.

Putting Down Roots: Power To Be’s Gateway To Nature

We are getting closer and closer to welcoming our Power To Be community to a place they can truly call home—our gateway to nature at Prospect Lake. With this new site, we can give back by creating a space where our community can come together to learn, innovate and inspire others to explore the outdoors. After many years of planning, hard work, and collaboration we are almost ready to open the doors to our new home.

Go Explore: Tod Inlet

In the north end of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park next to Butchart Gardens, lies the beautiful Tod Inlet. I have hiked down through the mossy forest above Tod Creek to the beautiful inlet in several different seasons. There is always something beautiful to see!
