We’re pleased to announce that the organisation selected to receive this year’s environmental grant in the amount of $10,000, is the Volcan Mountain Foundation. 

Since the late 1980s, the group has worked to preserve Volcan Mountain and maintain it in its natural state to protect it (and its inhabitants) for years to come.

They actively involve Indigenous advisors in their stewardship practices, engage a multi-disciplinary team of scientists to consult on projects and lead outdoor educational programs for children.

The specific project TWFF is helping to fund will improve the forest resilience in an area that is increasingly vulnerable to wildfires.

“We’re embarking on an important multi-year forest management project that embraces our responsibility to steward this strikingly biologically diverse and increasingly threatened landscape for all generations. Supported by The White Feather Foundation, our work on the mountain will restore health to the montane oak and conifer woodlands and increase its resilience to future wild fires and other long term damaging effects of climate change.”

We are thrilled to support this project and look forward to providing The White Feather Foundation community with regular updates on its progress.
