BC Conservation Foundation recognizes and celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day today, June 21 2023, as a day to reflect on the cultures and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Indigenous Peoples of Canada.

This day also marks the summer solstice, as the longest period of daylight of the year, which occurs when the sun is in its highest position in the sky and one of Earth's poles has its maximum tilt toward the sun.

For many generations, many First Nation communities have traditionally celebrated their culture and heritage on this day of daylight.

Those of us working towards conservation can appreciate the changing seasons and warmer weather as many enjoy more time in the outdoors and in nature, picking berries or fishing for trout or salmon in our home waters.
