Burns Bog Conservation Society

At Anything on a Clock, we are holding a fundraiser for The Burns Bog Conservation Society. Every clock that is sold using the email address info@anythingonaclock.ca, we will donate 15% of the sales to the Burns Bog Conservation Society.

Your clock can be a Burns Bog clock but it doesn't need to be. You can order anything that you woiuld like on a clock using the email address of info@anythingonaclock.ca and you will be helping the Burns Bog Conservation Society.

In addition, if you purchase one of the images opn this web page, we will give the Burns Bog Conservation Soceity an additional 10%.

The following text comes directly from the Burns Bog Conservation Society's web site.

History

Twenty concerned citizens founded the Burns Bog Conservation Society in 1988. They along with other members of the community had successfully stopped a major development that would have seen Burns Bog put under 20 feet of landfill and converted to commercial, residential, industrial and one square mile scooped out for a deep-sea port.

The founders realized that they had won “the battle but not the war” to protect Burns Bog. In order to ensure long-term protection they felt they needed to continue to educate people about the ecological benefits of the Bog and raise awareness about the need to protect it for future generations.

The Society is a registered society in British Columbia (S-24249) and a registered Canadian charity (BN 12916 6682 RR0001).

What we do

Conduct educational programs including interpretive tours, fieldtrips, summer day camps.

Obtain funding to build and maintain the boardwalk system in the Delta Nature Reserve (Burns Bog) so you can enjoy this ecological gem without damaging the sensitive vegetation. The boardwalks are stroller and wheelchair and bike accessible.

Network with leading scientists to give and distribute accurate and up-to-date information on peatlands. In 1995 Dr David Bellemy discovered that Burns Bog was regenerating after the peat harvesting. He told the Society that, “ you have proved by accident in Burns Bog the theory that the bog will regenerate within 40 years!”

Publish peatland education material for all ages.

Attended and asked others to voice their concerns on behalf of Burns Bog at all levels. These include everything from the Peatland Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland to local city council meetings.

Partner with other environmental organizations and acedemic institutions.

Host awareness events such as International Bog Days, Jog for the Bog, Burns Bog Gala, and the Pilgrimage to Burns Bog.

Received the Cultural Diversity Award in 1997 for its work to reach a broader community by translating its Quick Guide to Burns Bog in Punjabi and Mandarin and its inclusiveness in the workplace.
