A Rocha Northern BC

A Rocha’s work in Northern BC supports a community of environmental stewards who live in this beautiful area. With vast, rich ecosystems and few people, environmental degradation can happen without anyone knowing. That’s why A Rocha is planted here: to encourage, connect & champion grassroots creation care.
