  Nature Trust of British Columbia  
  The Nature Trust of British Columbia is one of the largest and longest standing land conservation organization in British Columbia. The Nature Trust's dedication and work in habitat conservation have been critical to the protection and nurturing of this province's natural legacy. British Columbia supports a variety of ecosystems such as coastal estuaries, old-growth forests, interior wetlands, grasslands, sub-alpine forests and alpine meadows. These ecosystems provide habitat to more than 700 endangered, threatened or vulnerable plants and animals. As well, these habitats beautify our province and enhance our quality of life.
The Nature Trust was established more than 30 years ago. In the spring of 1971, Bert Hoffmeister, a former Canadian Major-General and war hero who was becoming a noted conservationist, was riding near Pavilion, B.C. on the Diamond S Ranch when he was told Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was calling for him. Trudeau told him he had a $4.5 million (the equivalent of $10 million now) grant set aside to finance a unique conservation project in B.C. That is how The National Second Century Fund of British Columbia, later to be called The Nature Trust of British Columbia, was born. Bert Hoffmeister would sit as the Chair of the organization for the next 20 years.
Since then, The Nature Trust has continued to carry out conservation activities based on the principles of integrity, cooperation and sound science. More than 17,000 hectares of ecologically significant land has been purchased and protected. The Nature Trust also oversees the sustainable management of 40,000 additional hectares through long-term leases of Crown land. We work with landowners, corporations, foundations, other conservation organizations, and governments to conserve B.C.'s natural legacy. Up-to-date scientific information, technology and expertise ensure our efforts are properly focused on the conservation of critical habitats within B.C., and the important plants and animals those habitats nurture.

Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
$21,403.00 US.

Nature Trust of British Columbia has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Nature Trust of British Columbia.

AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Nature Trust of British Columbia. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
