Quick Facts

  • We operate a 5000 square km guide territory in the southeast corner of the Chilcotin Ark 
  • We educate guests, students and interns about our Three Pillars
  • Twenty-five wilderness camps which we use as satellite research centres

    We facilitate a self-sustainable lifestyle. Currently we have:

    • A garden to grow some of our own food
    • Water gravity-fed from a nearby creek and wood fires to reduce our dependence on the system
    • We harvest as much of our food as possible from the local area, reducing the impact on the environment through lowering food miles and the use of pesticides, hormones and steroids in our food
    • We are working to increase our self-sufficiency into the future.
