The SCCP has added three new "hot of the press" resources developed for species and spaces of the Pacific Northwest.

Swallows are iconic species that many British Columbians appreciate.
With a grant from the Federal Science Horizons funding and the support of our partners at the Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition the SCCP will be continuing to host an intern focused on the stewardship and restoration of native species and ecosystems at risk on the South Coast. This position is being facilitated through the BC Conservation Foundation (BCCF).
