Wild Days in August

August 1, 2018  |  Community Events, News  |  Comments Off on Wild Days in August

The Slocan Lake Stewardship Society is proud to present Wild Days, a wildly successful nature program in its fourth year! Wild Days are three family-oriented nature walks in August to explore different habitats within the Slocan Lake watershed. Each day will have local naturalists and scientists on tap to make the day interesting.

Every summer, Wild Days introduces a variety of destinations and themes and this year’s offerings include a fascinating “Evening with the Stars” with experts from Okanagan’s Royal Astronomical Society. We hope you can make it to one or all three of the following exciting programs.

The first program Hosts of Valley of the Ghosts is happening Saturday, August 4. Explore the Valley of the Ghosts from old saloons in Sandon to recovering forests with saskatoons along the K&S Rail Trail. Leaders include Hal Wright, Vida Turok, Marcy Mahr and Jim Moore. This tour is co-sponsored by the North Slocan Trails Society. Participants meet at the Prospector’s Pick store in Sandon’s downtown.

Did you know that toads and bats are trail users? The second program Toads & Bats Take to the Trails brings participants to Summit Lake on Saturday, August 11. Wildlife biologists Kat McGlynn and Elodie Kuhnert are teamed up to share how adult and baby toads along with elusive bats are using the rail trail along Summit Lake.  This tour is co-sponsored by Hills Recreation Society and Kootenay Community Bat Project. Participants meet at the Rail Trail at the southeast end of Summit Lake and park on Summit Road.

Dig out your binoculars and get ready for an intergalactic experience of star-gazing. An Evening with the Stars is scheduled on Saturday, August 18. Experts Colleen O’Hare, Guy Mackie and Olaf Lutz will take participants on a star-studded tour of the universe. This tour is co-sponsored by Royal Astronomical Society of Canada’s Okanagan Centre. Participants meet at the Centennial Park gazebo in New Denver. Please feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket.

Wild Days are FREE and the first two events run from 9 am to 12 noon. Please note that the third event Evening with the Stars is from 8 pm to 11 pm. Don’t forget to dress for the weather, bring plenty of water and snacks, and please carpool.

Wild Days 2018 is made possible by Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK Area H, and Regional Recreation Commission #6. For further information, please visit www.slocanlakess.com.

Community Composting Survey

November 15, 2017  |  Community Events, News  |  Comments Off on Community Composting Survey

The Healthy Community Society of the North Slocan Valley is looking into the possibility of community composting. As part of our study we need to know about your composting habits, needs and desires and what barriers you currently find with the process. Organic waste creates, on average, 40% of the public waste stream and yet, if diverted from the landfill, can make a valuable product.  One survey per household is adequate.  The Healthy Community Society appreciates your feedback!  Deadline for submission is December 6th, 2017.

The link to the online survey can be found:  Community Compost Survey

If a paper copy is preferred, please download it here: Compost Survey Questions Final

Paper copies may be picked up at the Village of New Denver office.
