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.
