Do you regularly walk, roll or stroll around your neighbourhood, beach or forest? Are you searching for a way to make a direct impact on our communities and see change right before our eyes? Well, I encourage you to considering ‘plalking’! plalking: picking up trash while walking.
Marnie, a Power To Be participant, was chosen to be a Butterfly Ranger volunteer in the Butterflyway Project with The David Suzuki Foundation. With a passion for the project and all things nature, Marnie discusses being a butterfly ranger, how Power To Be has contributed to her experiences in nature, and gives some tips on how to be a good environmental steward.
As part of our stewardship of the land at Prospect Lake, we want to support species’ habitats and population growth. That’s why we've partnered with Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT) to support their study of the current state of owl populations in our wooded areas — especially the Western Screech-Owl.
Power To Be’s belief that ‘everyone belongs in nature’ is a core component of everything that we do, and every decision that we make as an organization. We understand that encouraging and supporting others to get outside and into nature can have an impact on our environment, and as such, we wish to mitigate our environmental and ecological footprint as best we can. We are proud to be taking sustainability action in our community by being a part of the One Planet Saanich initiative.
