Bragg Creek Environmental Coalition

The Bragg Creek Environmental Coalition Foundation (BCEC) incorporated as a not for profit society in 1995. The roots of this organization go back to as early as 1987 when concerned residents of Bragg Creek joined together to object to a massive logging project in the West Bragg Creek area.

Alert: Most mature pine forests adjacent to West Bragg Creek scheduled for clearcut logging within 3 years!

Moose Mountain Dialogue

Bragg Creek Environmental Coalition has been in dialogue with Shell and Husky for several years in a partnership effort to minimize development operations near Bragg Creek. The result is several changes to operations and the introduction of programs that benefit the environment. Read about it here in a presentation (PDF 861KB) given to the Bow River Basin Council in December 2004.
