May 3: walking tour of the conservation lands…

You’re Invited! Duncan Lardeau Conservation Properties Tour – May 3, 2017

Come and learn more about some of the conservation properties at the north end of the lake. Instead of the usual annual update to the community at an indoor venue, we thought it would be great to get outside, and see some of the progress being made for yourself.

Learn about the expansion of the Western Painted Turtle nesting habitat and get the latest monitoring results; visit the North Field at the Lake Ranch property; get an update on burdock control in the area, and the progress being made on restoring local wetlands; and hear about the new property acquisition by The Nature Trust of B.C.

The plan is to meet at the Lake Ranch property at 1.00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3. More details about the meeting location and the tour will be placed on the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program’s website (fwcp.ca) shortly, and in next week’s Lardeau Valley LINKS. Or just call Angus at 250-352-1300.

Hospice Training in June…

The Hospice Society of North Kootenay Lake is offering a hospice volunteer training on the weekends of June 10 and June 24. We want to make it easier for people in the communities of the Lardeau Valley  to attend. If enough people from this  area are interested, the first weekend will be held in Argenta and the second weekend in Kaslo. There is no requirement with your attendance that you commit to being an active hospice volunteer. This is also valuable as public education as it will benefit the community when more local people have this information. If you would like more information about the training please email or call as soon as possible. This will be a great help with our planning.
