But, you may be asking, what the heck is SPEC? Why it is the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation of course! Founded in 1969, SPEC’s website identifies itself as the “oldest environmental non-profit in Canada.”

The Comox Valley SPEC group and hundreds of volunteers made our local campaign the biggest in BC that year.
