Environmental Stewadership 

The Klahoose Nation is rich in land, water, and cultural resources.


The Klahoose ancestors have managed this legacy of natural resources, honoring and protecting the environment and its inhabitants for millennia. 


The Klahoose Nation supports sustainable forestry, aquaculture, and an expanding tourism portfolio. Visitors can now explore this resplendent region like never before as they experience the Klahoose Coastal Adventures Grizzly Bear viewing and lodge at the new Klahoose Wilderness Resort. True to their legacy, both operators are fully committed to continue protecting the environment, its wildlife, and natural resources for all future generations. 


Their investment is committed to the preservation, conservation, and protection of our ocean, wilderness, marine, and terrestrial life as well as the local community.
 

  • The off-the-grid Resort produces its own power and supplies excess power across the territory. In 2022  where awarded a grant from First Nation Clean Energy Business Fund to redesign and improve the resorts water intake, peloton wheel (hydro-wheel) and storage capacity at the Resort. This brand new "turn-key" electrical grid will come with state of the art equipment, allowing us to harness the water more efficiently, triple our energy generation and most importantly, enable us to store energy (otherwise lost) so critical during peak consumption periods.

  • Partnership with the Commercial Bear Viewing Association to develop industry standards, uniform guide training, and ongoing research to protect bear and wildlife habitat and supporting the Grizzly Bear Foundation 

  • Contribution to the local economy to support regional coastal communities by purchasing locally-sourced goods and food, hiring local and Indigenous staff, and supporting artists

  • Recycling program and each guests will receive a reusable water bottle to avoid single use plastics

  • Investment in glacier, watershed, and ocean health research

  • Create a mentorship program for Indigenous youth for careers in tourism

 

The above efforts help to offset the Klahoose Wilderness Resort carbon footprint. 


Guests who choose to visit Klahoose Wilderness Resort will naturally support these great initiatives while etching memories through their personal adventures. This collective effort, a connection to place, its people, and time-gathered wisdom come together at Klahoose Wilderness Resort within the Klahoose Nation to cast lifelong memories while providing a positive impact for us all.
