Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust (ASET) was established in 2002. Members of ASET felt that the earth’s resources were being consumed at an alarming rate and increasing pollution was rapidly degrading the environment.
For us to meet our future environmental challenges it is crucial to support motivated young people in their education in fields related to the environment. An annual bursary was established to encourage local students to enter post-secondary studies in a field related to environmental sustainability. Students can prepare for careers in forest sustainability, development of non-polluting fuel sources, water protection, or wildlife biology, just to name a few eligible fields.
