Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society in collaboration with Selkirk College would like to invite you to take part in our Nest Box Building workshop which aims to encourage wildlife into our community.

Within the workshop, Selkirk students will be teaching you about two bird species – the Barrow’s Golden Eye and the Tree-Swallow. Following the presentations, a demonstration will be given on how to construct nest boxes for both of these species.

You will then be able to take either a Barrows Golden Eye or Tree-Swallow nest box home to construct!

Workshops are available on either:
Monday, October 15, 1.45-3.15pm
Thursday, October 18, 8.45-10.15am
Cost: $20 per person, please bring cash upon arrival.

The cost of this workshop is to cover the purchasing of nest box materials.

Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society’s annual Kootenay Lake Summit is taking place on November 3rd, 2018.

Where: JV Humphries School – 500-6th Street, Kaslosunrise

The Kootenay Lake Summit is a free event offering an opportunity for community members to engage by attending talks and presentations hosted by experts in their field. Last years event allowed over 100 residents to participate and the chance to learn about stewardship activities going on around the lake that they can actively participate in.

The focus of the 2018 Summit will be to provide residents with sound knowledge on the history of Kootenay Lake including related cultural and archaeological history. Come and enjoy a delicious meal, locally sourced (alcohol-free) beverages and engaging conversation!

This is a free event, however, there is a recommended donation of $15 to help the organization cover the costs associated with this event.
