At EDI, our passion for excellence, collaboration, and community shines through in everything we do. Recently, EDI team members volunteered to conduct a weekend environmental inventory of a former golf course that is now the program home base for Power To Be, a non-profit organization that empowers people to explore their limitless abilities through inclusive adventures rooted in nature. The organization believes finances shouldn’t prevent anyone from accessing nature, and it works to remove cognitive, physical, and social barriers to the outdoors, supporting participants to explore who they are and what they are capable of with the support of staff, volunteers, and each other. http://powertobe.ca/
The environmental inventory effort was focused on understanding the features of the site to help Power To Be plan their built environment to avoid sensitive environmental features and create educational opportunities from the unique features on the beautiful 78-acre site in Saanich, just outside Victoria, British Columbia.
The EDI team included ten professional biologists and planners with specialties in wildlife, aquatics, vegetation, soils, planning, as well as many of their spouses, kids, and a dog.
