whatwedoWhat we do

The Grasslands Conservation Council (GCC) is the only organization in BC whose programs are focused solely on the conservation and stewardship of the province's grasslands. The three main program branches of the GCC are:

  • Education and Outreach
  • Grassland Stewardship and Sustainable Ranching
  • Conservation of Grasslands

Each of these three programs contains a diverse range of strategies and activities that address different aspects of our organization's overall mission.
