Gulf Islands Seniors – Take Back the Wild Program (Register ASAP)

October 21 - October 24

Take Back the Wild: Raising the Voices of Gulf Island Seniors, is a free, 5-month long program.  Registration by October 15 requested.  This Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society program includes two multi-day summits in November, mentorship, and participant-led marine conservation projects.

Participants will receive training in a wide range of campaign skills including communications, media relations, community engagement, working with Indigenous communities, and government relations. Further, participants will learn about the proposed Southern Straight of Georgia National Marine Conservation Area. Following the summit, participants will apply their new skills to a conservation project in their community.

We are seeking seniors, aged 60 and above, living in the Gulf Islands who have an interest in marine conservation in the Southern Straight of Georgia and desire to develop skills in campaign planning. Our goal is to bring a diverse and passionate group of people together to learn from local leaders in conservation, to engage in dialogue on key components of campaign planning, and to inspire and celebrate regional conservation in action.

How Do I Apply? Apply online: http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WLF7BX5 by Sunday, October 15th. For further information please contact Alana Wittman takebackthewild@cpawsbc.org
