The Kootenay Lake Local Conservation Fund provides funding to conservation projects located within Electoral Area A. The Fund is enabled through taxation by the RDCK.
The Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) in partnership with the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) provide funding for projects that benefit conservation in the rural areas around Kootenay Lake, specifically Electoral Areas A, D, and E (click here for map) within the RDCK through the Kootenay Lake Local Conservation Fund (KLLCF). The purpose of the KLLCF is to provide local financial support for important projects that will contribute to the conservation of our valuable natural areas; one step towards restoring and preserving a healthy environment. The intent is to provide funding for conservation projects that are not the existing responsibility of the federal, provincial or local governments.
