Valhalla Pure Outfitters

When Valhalla Pure Outfitters was formed in 1990 to make specialty outdoor clothing and gear, they didn't need to look to some exotic location on the far side of the planet for inspiration. The rapid weather changes and punishing wear-and-tear of the Valhalla Range in Southern BC taught them all they need to know about the requirements their gear would need. Today there are twelve Valhalla Pure Outfitters stores across B.C. and Alberta, carrying apparel, camping and hiking gear, and top-quality snow sports and paddle sports equipment. The donation of our grand prize package was made by the Nanaimo, Victoria and Squamish stores.

Cause

The Salish Sea is one of the most biologically rich marine ecosystems in the world. It is home to some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring creatures – orca and humpback whales, giant octopus, great blue heron and a diver’s paradise of glass sponge reefs to name a few. It is a place of spectacular beauty, with soaring mountains, remote inlets, vibrant islands, and abundant watersheds, stewarded for millennia by coastal First Nations and loved and relied on by communities today.

But the Salish Sea is a region under threat. Population growth, urbanization and climate change are putting increased pressures on both ecosystems and communities.

Georgia Strait Alliance is dedicated to the protection and restoration of this place that almost nine million people and 3000 marine species call home. Our approach centres and takes its lead from communities, and reflects that we cannot achieve healthy ecosystems without also supporting healthy communities. This approach is reflected in our mission: Grounded in environmental justice, we mobilize and support collective action to protect the Salish Sea region.

We hope you will Explore the Salish Sea with us through your support of this raffle! Together, we are stronger, and we can and will protect this special place, where we live, work and play.   Thank you!
