About Our Charity

The Burns Bog Conservation Society was established in 1988 by a concerned group of citizens. They, along with other members of the community, successfully stopped a major development. The founders realized they had won the battle but not the war to protect Burns Bog.

The Society has a credible reputation as the voice of Burns Bog and is committed to educating people of the ecological and economic benefits of Burns Bog and other peatlands globally and how they affect our quality of life.

Burns Bog is the only estuarine raised peat bog found in a Mediterranean climate. It is located in Delta, British Columbia.

The Society conducts field trips, public tours, holds summer day camps, produces educational material. It hosts special events such as International Bog Day and Jog for the Bog.

The Society builds and maintains the boardwalks in the Delta Nature Reserve.

The Society receives no funding from the United Way, the Corporation of Delta or Metro Vancouver.
