WILD DAYS Family Nature Programs Planned for August

Curious about the amazing plants and animals of the Slocan Valley? Have you ever wished you could be in a naturalist’s back pocket seeing what they see? There’s outdoor fun and learning to be had in August during WILD DAYS!

The Slocan Lake Stewardship Society is offering four family-oriented nature programs 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.

The first program is scheduled for Saturday, August 1 from 9 am-12 pm and features a walk along the shores of Slocan Lake in New Denver. We will meet at the bottom of Main Street in New Denver at the sculpture.

The second program will take place on Wednesday, August 12 from 12 pm-3:30pm and focus on the variety of wetlands in Hills. The meeting place is at the Hills Fire Hall, 18 km north of New Denver on Highway 6. This event is co-sponsored by SWAMP (the Slocan Wetlands Assessment & Monitoring Project) and will conclude in time to hop up to the beginning of Toadfest at Summit Lake Provincial Park at 4 pm.

The last two WILD DAYS programs, focusing on creek and riparian habitat are scheduled for Saturday, August 15 in Slocan (meet at the gazebo at Expo Park) and on Saturday, August 29 in Silverton, (meet at the Village Office and Silverton Gallery parking area). Both programs are from 9 am-12 pm.
