CCCS Community Involvement

In addition to our in-class programs, we like to get out there and meet as many folks as possible! Through community events, projects, and media, we work hard to spread the word about conservation and how we can all make a little effort to create BIG change. We also like to have fun, too!

Ecosystems, Wildlife, and Wild Spaces of the Cariboo Chilcotin

Over 100 pages of pictures, maps, and conservation info, this guide is the perfect backcountry companion in the Cariboo Chilcotin. Download here, or pick it up from our office or the Tourism Discovery Centre.

Bikes for All

The Bikes for All project provides a perfect example of how we can easily recover items often thrown away, and keep people active, too! Project runs from April to August, including the annual Bike Rodeo in early May.

Skates for All

The Skates for All project sets up green donation bins around town to collect gently used skates, then repairs and donates them to families in need. Project runs from October to February. 

Food for All

CCCS runs a food reclamation project every year, gleaning unused crops from local farms during the growing season and distributing it among local charities. We harvest and store the crops in a root cellar built by CCCS volunteers in a local historic house, reducing food waste and feeding those in need!

One of our most famous events, this annual holiday crafting extravaganza features tons of earth-friendly craft making stations. FREE to all! Late November or early December.

This is an earth science-based event for Grade 7 students that includes educational displays, recycle art, and a Jeopardy-style conservation quiz based on our very own Earth Challenge guide that the students study prior to the event. So much fun! Held every year, on Earth Day.
