Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) is a unique, non-profit, partnership driven society that provides a bridge between community, business, and government.
In 1993, a forward-thinking Township of Langley staff member, Peter Scales, convened a small group of community-oriented individuals to form a non-profit society that could provide local green jobs, utilize volunteers, and build community-oriented partnerships to conserve the streams and natural areas of Langley.
LEPS as a Model
LEPS has a favourable reputation due to the success of the relationships that have been built with its partners, especially the Township of Langley. The partnership between LEPS and the Township of Langley is seen as a model for all communities dealing with watershed issues. Langley Township has developed a positive reputation as a progressive municipality by showing strong support for LEPS and environmental stewardship.
Today, LEPS continues to work with numerous volunteer stewardship organizations to protect and restore Langley’s natural environment through education, cooperation, and action.
