According to world renowned naturalist Robert Bateman…’British Columbia needs a few thousand more Daphne Soleckis’. Daphne is the extraordinary individual who developed an idea into a very successful and hugely important organization called the Young Naturalists’ Clubs of British Columbia. Over 10,000 children have been introduced to the importance of nature, the value of their environment and the need to preserve it through the network of fifty school and family clubs spanning the Province. Daphne has had a profound impact not only on the lives of BC children but also on the naturalist movement in BC and Canada where she has served as a diligent board member and valuable mentor.
BC Achievement is an independent foundation established in 2003 that honours excellence and inspires achievement in British Columbia.
