Environmental education and awareness programs will resume in the Creston Valley this spring under the oversight of a local, non-profit organization.  The Kootenay-Columbia Discovery Centre Society (KCDCS) will take over delivering the education programs which were previously managed by the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Authority (CVWMA).  The CVWMA ceased operating the Wildlife Interpretation Centre and related programs in October 2017.  

If you are interested in booking a program or want more information, please send us an email or visit KCDCS's website.

The CVWMA was chosen as a 2009 Rand McNally Best of the Road Editor’s Pick and featured in the 2009 Rand McNally Road Atlas.
