Bold Point Centre is slowly developing. We've expanded to include program development for various resorts. Resorts are changing emphasis from sport fishing to soft adventures / experiential programs. To activate such programs, they need non-timber product inventories done and blended into educational opportunities. The wildcrafting component is then blended a second time to draw upon First Nation and settler histories. We then blend a third time to build programs which address current issues: salmon farms, aquaculture, organic foods, eco-footprints, 100 km diet.
