Discover Mountains Forests and Mother Trees
If getting your hands dirty is your passion

Your membership also gains you access into various ecological events where you can help us regenerate habitat. Learn how an ecosystem works and explore the living forest. Events that you can participate in include:

  • Spring Trail and Backcountry Road Plant Restoration – We move wild plants from logging roads before the graders arrive and we transplant them into restoration areas.
  • Mother Tree Expedition – We search out Mother Trees to collect cones for propagating seedlings.
  • Creating Bird Habitat – We create songbird habitat and nesting areas.
  • Wild Ginger Restoration – We transplant Wild Ginger in remote backcountry areas.
  • Riparian Restoration – We seek to restore riparian areas by planting trees and seedings and transplanting the species that are natural to the ecosystem that supports these edge areas.
  • Creating Bug and Snake Habitat – We create remote habitat that supports insects that in turn support snakes which are endangered red-listed species.
  • Wild Pollinator Support – We plant natural plant species in remote areas that have been damaged in an effort to support wild pollinators and restore the natural ecosystem.

Because our work is constant, these various activities happen throughout the year and as a member you can participate at any time by simply calling in advance. While we carry out these efforts your will learn a great deal about wildcrafting and plant spirit medicine. You will also learn about ecosystems as we make observations of what we are seeing and experiencing in an effort to monitor climate change and biodiversity issues.
The Wildcraft Forest is home to the Sanctuary Forest Therapy Centre where twelve different kinds of forest therapy and wildcrafting practices are presented and taught through daily excursions, retreats, certification and immersion programs.

Four satellite Yasei Sanctuary Forests are also available, each representing different kinds of energies and environments for learning and practicing Yasei Shinrin Yoku and plant spirit medicine. 

You can join us in the forest through challengespassport memberships, personal coaching programsdestination retreats and immersion experiences. You can become a guide or practitioner; and if you’re starting out, you can drop-in or even participate in one of our online Yasei Shinrin Yoku challenges.

Six Pillars of Wild Intention
Sanctuary Forest Membership

With a Sanctuary Forest Membership you can dwell in a forest that is specifically intended to help people and the beings that dwell within it. It allows you to help us financially as we regenerate habitat – you can even join us in our various work endeavours which then becomes a worthwhile adventure on many levels as we learn how an ecosystem works while we explore the remote living forest.

With your membership you can help us with hands-on stewardship work but we understand that you might be unable to bushwack into wild areas to help us plant trees and restore remote habitat. We understand that you might simply need to relax and become regenerated on a soul level.
