What is environmental stewardship? 

Environmental stewardship is the responsible use and protection of the environment through conservation and sustainable practices (NOAA, 2022). 

Environmental stewardship is not a new phenomenon, it has deep roots in diverse Indigenous communities across Canada who have taken care of the land since time immemorial. NLPS resides on the traditional territories of the local Snaw Naw As, Snuneymuxw, and Stz’minus people who continue to respect and care for the land we call home. 

As we move towards a more sustainable society, it is clear that learning from the land and embedding First Peoples perspectives, knowledge systems, and cultures can help preserve the natural environment and all within it.
