Living Landscapes was created by the Royal British Columbia Museum as a regional outreach program involving intensive cooperation with other museums, First Nations, educators, naturalists, and other agencies. Our goal is to encourage and facilitate the exploration and appreciation of the human and natural history of British Columbia from regional perspectives.

We approach this goal through focus on particular regions of B.C. and integrating stories and research locally generated with both research knowledge and descriptive information from the collections and curatorial staff at the Royal British Columbia Museum.

Living Landscapes' initial focus for in-field programming has been the northern, central and southern interior of British Columbia. With the successful completion of the Northwest region in March 2006, we have achieved our goal of facilitating the exploration and appreciation of the human and natural history of the northern, central and southern interior of the province. Our in-field programming has been discontinued.

If you have a research or educational project that provides new regional views into the human and natural history of BC, we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact us at:
