Nature and wildlife are often prominent themes in much of BC’s art and culture! As part of WildSafeBC's "BC Goes Wild" weekend events, the FVRD WildSafeBC Community Coordinator will attend the Mission Culture Day's Farmer's Market with the WildSafeBC booth to help highlight the important connection between both nature and wildlife and our local arts and culture. Visit our booth to learn about local wildlife species and biology, and how you can prevent human-wildlife conflict. There are plenty of interactive props to see at the booth (like animal skulls, scat, and tracks), a Jeopardy!-style trivia game to play, and lots of free informative take-home items to help you better understand how to keep wildlife wild and communities safe. By learning about what local wildlife needs to survive and how we can reduce conflict, we can better protect our local wildlife and their habitats so they can provide inspiration for arts and culture in BC for many generations to come!

Follow WildSafeBC Fraser Valley on Facebook to learn more about the "BC Goes Wild" weekend events in Mission, Chilliwack, and Harrison Hot Springs, or contact the FVRD WildSafeBC Community Coordinator directly at [email protected].

WildSafeBC is the provincial leader in preventing conflict with wildlife through collaboration, education, and community solutions. It evolved out of the highly successful Bear Aware program and is owned and delivered by the British Columbia Conservation Foundation. WildSafeBC provides information on how we can reduce human-wildlife conflicts in all aspects of our lives, including how we live, work, play, and grow.

Founded in 1969 by the B.C. Wildlife Federation, the British Columbia Conservation Foundation (BCCF) is a registered society and charity. Established to achieve ‘on-the-ground’ conservation success, BCCF has been involved in over 5000 research, restoration, mapping, and education projects since 1986. Since 1998, BCCF has adopted a leadership role in reducing human-wildlife conflict, helping to expand and deliver programs in more than thirty BC communities. We focus on a wide variety of wildlife species found throughout BC, explore the species pages on our website to learn more.
