The Acorn Outdoor Club was formed in 2003 to allow controlled access to private lands on Texada Island and the West Kootenays. An Acorn Outdoor Club membership includes a one-year membership in the BC Wildlife Federation.
The goals of the Acorn Outdoor Club are to:
- Provide a safe, enjoyable, and exclusive use of designated private lands.
- Protect this exclusivity and enjoyment of use by various interest groups and individual members. This is achieved by co-coordinating timetables and areas of use – i.e. Separate timetables or designated areas for hunting users, general users, and forestry contractors.
- Encourage member stewardship and “quiet enjoyment” of the private lands while respecting ongoing forestry activities.
- Provide access and control of hunting on the private lands.
AOC membership is by the calendar year and includes an identification card, a key to gates, a map of the property, and BCWF membership.
