PCAF Grants $65,000 for Community-Based Conservation Projects

Fifteen community-based fish & wildlife projects will be given a helping hand this summer as grant recipients of HCTF’s Public Conservation Assistance Fund. Over $65,000 has been granted to projects working to build habitat, remove invasive species and introduce angling to people who might not otherwise get the chance.

Volunteers are an essential component of all PCAF projects, and this group of successful applicants (in aggregate) estimate their volunteer contributions will be in excess of 1100 hours: that’s more than 45 days of helping conservation in BC! Download our 2013-14 PCAF Approved Projects List (1st Call) for further details on project goals and locations.
