Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km

that would benefit from using their Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and

hay fields are good options.

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional performing

soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and delivery costs of Celgrow

soil amendment based on access with a large truck/pup combination.

Acreage should be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two

major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping

process and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment

facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good

source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating

Celgrow into their soil.

If interested, please contact Len Hewat

Live shows are

back!

The Trail and District Arts Council

announces 6 Beats Apart, a series

of limited seating shows at The Bailey

Theatre this fall.

Since closing the Bailey Theatre

doors in mid-March Executive Director

Nadine Tremblay has been thinking

of new, safe, and fun ways to bring the

live entertainment experience back to

the community.

Nadine Tremblay said, “After the

decision was made to cancel all performances

this spring and summer,

because of the restrictions on large

gatherings, we felt that a mix of intimate

shows from BC artists would

bring a fresh spin to our programming,

while keeping our staff and patrons

safe.”

Each show will be for a group of fifty

people, providing a small club, exclusive

atmosphere, but with the great sound

and lighting of The Bailey. Attendees

will be able to sit in their social bubble

of up to six people with ample space

around each group to maintain physical

distancing.

Anyone attending will have to adhere

to safety protocols to ensure social distancing

and to prevent mingling. Full

refunds will also be given to anyone

who can no longer attend if they feel ill.

A selection of well-loved local performers

will be bringing the community

back together. Jazz series favourites

Melody Diachun & Friends will bring

us together on Saturday, October 10,

followed by John McLachlan’s music

multimedia show, Call it Home, on

Friday, October 16. Clinton Swanson

fans will love the cool Lazy Poker

Blues Band on Saturday, October 24,

while country fans will ‘yeeha’ when

Son of John opens for Lisa Nicole on

Saturday, November 14. Bringing the

laughs on Thursday, November 19 will

be award-winning comedian Mike

Delamont with his Socially Distant

Stand Up Comedy Tour, with the world

beat funk of nine-piece Hornography

on Saturday, November 28. Rounding

out the shows will be the Clinton Swanson

R&B Revue, a high energy eight

piece performing old school soul, R’n’B,

and blues, on Saturday, December 12.

To be part of this exclusive experience

tickets must be bought in

advance, either online at thebailey.

ca, or by calling the box office at 250-

368-9669. Tickets are $20 or $25 per

person, depending on the show, and

go on sale at 12 noon on Tuesday, September

8, subject to availability. Online

purchases can be made 24/7 until noon

on the day of the performance. The box

office will be open for phone purchases

ONLY from 12-4 pm from Monday to

Friday.

For those unable to attend, the option

to stream these limited-edition shows

will be available at a future date with

proceeds going to charity.

This show is made possible thanks to

funding from Columbia Basin Trust,

Kootenay Savings Credit Union, the

Province of British Columbia, BC Arts

Council, BC Touring Council, and the

Government of Canada.

The Trail and District Arts Council

want to thank everyone in the community

for their continued support, and

hope to see some of you in the audience

later this month. To keep updated on

what is happening visit trail-arts.com

and sign-up for the newsletter.

Nearly $100

million in benefits

delivered by CBT

Columbia Basin Trust provided $97.3

million for programs, initiatives and

capital investments to positively impact

the communities and people of the

Basin, as released in its 2019/20 Annual

Service Plan Report. This includes $68.6

million in grants, $12.2 million in capital

projects to support economic development

and broadband infrastructure,

along with $9.2 million in business

loans and $7.3 million in real estate and

commercial investments.

Continued efficient and reliable operations

of its jointly owned hydroelectric

facilities in the West Kootenay along

with investments in real estate and

business loans, saw revenues increase

to $85.4 million, helping the Trust continue

to address the 13 priorities set

out in the Columbia Basin Management

Plan. These priorities guide the

Trust’s efforts to support communities

and were advanced in 2019/20 through

2,157 projects along with the introduction

of new programs and initiatives.

“Working with partners and communities,

we’ve kept moving forward

on the things that the people in the

Basin have told us matters to them

including affordable housing, childcare

and the environment,” said Johnny Strilaeff,

Columbia Basin Trust President

and CEO. “We are grateful for their

vision, support and collaboration over

the last 25 years and are deeply appreciative

of how we have been able to

grow and evolve as we worked together

to serve the people and communities in

the region.

“Now, as we continue to adapt to the

public health challenges of COVID-19,

we are looking ahead and asking residents

what’s most important to them

over the next 18 to 24 months, what

matters most to their family, what matters

most in their community, and how

can we work together to address those

priorities.”

The Trust is working on finalizing

a short-term strategic plan to determine

its focus over the next 18 to 24

months. Residents had until September

11 to provide their feedback. The new

plan is expected to be released later in

September.

“The past six months have been difficult

for communities and residents, but

it has also shown how strong and resilient

we are as a region,” said Strilaeff. “As

an organization, there have been valuable

learnings for our staff and Board

about how we work with communities

in ways that are most meaningful for

them. We are looking forward to hearing

from residents and incorporating

their feedback to develop a short-term

plan that is relevant and purposeful as

we continue to navigate a challenging

and evolving situation together.”

The Trust’s Annual General Meeting

took place online on September 18. For

RDCK wins a

2020 Sustainable

Communities Award

The Regional District of Central Kootenay

(RDCK) is pleased to announce it has been

selected as a winner of a 2020 Sustainable

Communities Award for exceptional work in

the Visionary Award category for Accelerate

Kootenays. The award honours and celebrates

the most innovative environmental initiatives

in cities and communities across Canada.

In collaboration with the Regional District

of East Kootenay (RDEK), the Regional

District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB)

and Columbia Basin Trust, the Accelerate

Kootenays Project was the first community

driven collaborative strategy to build a clean

transportation network by installing public

charging infrastructure for electric vehicles

(EV) throughout the region within communities.

It was coordinated over three years, at

the cost of $1.89 million, and involved multiple

partners with varying expertise to transform

a rural region into one that facilitates

EV travel.

The project successfully demonstrated

how regional governments and organizations

can collaborate to deploy a charging network

through strategic partnerships: to locate station

siting and regional appropriate technology

and outreach. It effectively increased

traffic at charging stations in rural areas, bolstered

economic development opportunities

for local businesses, contributed to reducing

greenhouse gases in the transportation sector,

and has been recognized provincially,

nationally and internationally.

The RDCK is one of the 11 winners (local

government or municipality) from across

the country chosen by the Federation of

Canadian Municipalitites (FCM) for their

outstanding efforts in one of nine categories:

asset management, brownfields, climate

change, energy, neighbourhoods, transportation,

waste, water and a new category in honour

of Green Municipal Fund (GMF’s) 20th

anniversary.

Winners will each deliver a live, TED-talkstyle

presentation on their projects at FCM’s

virtual Sustainable Communities Conference

held on October 20-22, 2020. Recipients in

each category are also eligible for the Inspire

Award, given to the most creative and innovative

project following the conference.

“Local solutions—scaled up—deliver

major national impact, like economic

growth and the emission reductions Canada

needs to meet its climate change goals,”

said Bill Karsten, President of the Federation

of Canadian Municipalities. “Whether it is

through improved energy efficiency, fewer

greenhouse gas emissions or stronger local

infrastructure, local governments get the job

local realities. This year’s FCM Sustainable

Communities Award winners embody those

principles of sustainability and collaboration.

Moreover, they exemplify how municipal

innovation can have concrete impacts and

deliver for Canadians.”

“It was a pleasure to work on this project

which presented tangible results and set

the path for our region to continue working

towards reducing our greenhouse gas

emissions within the transportation sector.

I would like to recognize Megan Lohmann

from Community Energy Association for her

leadership in guiding the project delivery,”

said Sangita Sudan, RDCK General Manager

of Development and Community Sustainability

Services. “The Accelerate Kootenays

Project also demonstrated that together we

can go far to achieve regional scale innovation

through strategic partnerships, collaboration

and continue to seek opportunities to

develop legacy projects.”

The Sustainable Communities Awards

is an initiative of FCM’s Green Municipal

Fund (GMF), a $1 billion program, delivered

through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities

and funded by the Government of

Canada.

Toadfest 2020

hopped online!

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a

year like no other in memory, but the toads

don’t know that. Their migration across the

highway from Summit Lake near Nakusp to

their forest wintering grounds went on as

scheduled. What did not go on as scheduled

was the in-person Toadfest , the annual event

to help the toadlets get across the road safely.

In light of restrictions on large gatherings,

the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program

hosted two online Toadfest events in 2020.

The events were recorded and you can

check them out at https://fwcp.ca/toadfest.

Learn more about the toad’s migration, life

cycle and the research and mitigation work

funded by FWCP. They’ve also posted some

songs and a few toad jokes. Toad Strong!

Face coverings required in all

RDCK recreation facilities

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is beginning

to safely re-open our recreation facilities for programs with

limited or reduced activities to accommodate the guidelines

and recommendation of local health authorities. Beginning

September 14, 2020, non-medical masks or face coverings will

be required when entering and moving through all common

areas of indoor recreation facilities, except when exercising or

performing physical activity. Wearing a mask combined with

other important preventative measures, such as frequent hand

washing and physical distancing, will help prevent the spread

of COVID-19. Using only a mask is not enough to prevent the

spread of COVID-19.

Exemptions Face masks are not required when:

• A medical professional has advised that wearing a mask

may pose a health risk to or impair an individual

• Wearing a mask would create a health or safety risk to

the wearer as determined by federal, provincial or local

regulators or Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)

guidelines

• An individual is physically unable to put on or take off the

mask without assistance

• An individual has trouble breathing or cannot remove the

mask without help

• An individual is deaf or hard of hearing and relies on

facial and mouth movements to receive communication

• An individual is a baby or toddler under two years of age

Ensure you:

• Place your mask so that it completely covers your mouth

and nose

• Put on your mask properly using the tie loops or elastic

bands that secure behind your head

• Wear your mask snug around your face and adjust it as

necessary throughout the day

• When taking off our mask and putting it down, place

it with the outside down on a tissue; if a tissue is not

available, clean the surface on which you placed it down

afterwards

• Wash your hands and face after removing the mask and

before touching your face

• Keep your mask clean and launder it once a day in warm

water

• Store your mask in a clean and dry space or properly

dispose of it

Please do not:

• Wear your mask under your nose and mouth

• Let a strap dangle down or cross the straps

• Touch or adjust your face mask without cleaning your

hands before and after

• Wear your mask on your head or around your neck or

arm

• Let your mask obstruct your vision

• Lay your mask on a surface that could be contaminated or

contaminate the surface

• Use a mask if it is damaged in any way

Recreation and park services are reviewed regularly as new

information and protocols become available. The RDCK

appreciates the patience of all our users as we implement new

expanded services with COVID-19 policies and procedures in

place.

For up to date information regarding openings and closures of

specific areas of recreation, please visit www.rdck.ca/recreation.

When I Go Away

Early in the morning

A-when the church bells toll

The choir’s gonna sing

And the hearse will roll

On down to the graveyard

Where it’s cold and gray

And then the sun’s gonna shine

Through the shadows

When I go away

Don’t want no sorrow

For this old orphan boy

I don’t want no crying

Only tears of joy

I’m gonna see my mother

Gonna see my father

And I’ll be bound for glory

In the morning

When I go away

Please follow covid protocols at all venues.

I’ll be lifted up to the clouds

On the wings of an angel

There’s only flesh and bones

In the ground

Where my troubles will stay

See that storm over yonder

It’s gonna rain all day

But then the sun’s gonna shine

Through the shadows

When I go away...

etc etc

Oxygen adult

education lineup

After much planning Oxygen is

excited to launch their fall lineup of adult

education opportunities, combining a

fine array of online and small in-person

classes.

Oxygen conducted a student survey

earlier in June to find out how people

were feeling (with COVID in mind) in

regards to participating in arts education

this fall. The response was very positive

and clear students want to be creative!

Oxygen then got to work with their talented

team of instructors and volunteers

to re-vision how the educational offerings

could be delivered in an innovative

and safe way.

“Oxygen will be offering seven

online courses and three small in-person

courses this fall,” says Education

Coordinator Natasha Smith. “Many of

our instructors have specifically created

classes that can be taught online,

utilizing the many tools that we now

have available to make this learning

experience rewarding, interactive and

convenient for our students. Another

benefit of online programming is that

we are removing the barrier of travel for

students that live outside of Nelson,” says

Smith.

The three in-person classes include,

Resurrecting the Lost Art of Letter Writing

with Rayya Liebich, Eco-Printing on Textiles

with Seathra Bell, and Painting on

Another Level with Natasha Smith. The

class sizes will be limited to a maximum

of 5 students and all COVID-19 safety

protocols at the Centre will be in place.

Oxygen is offering two online professional

development courses for creatives

this fall. Starting with Art Shack with

artist Ian Johnston. Ian explains: “It’s

a visual arts professional development

free-for-all! Over four evenings of group

conversation we will harness the hive

mind and the experience of the participants

to explore a self-identified group

of professional development issues such

as proposals, statements, audience, networks

and researching opportunities.”

This is an opportunity to share,

develop your skills, and meet other artists

in a supportive, collaborative space.

The second professional development

course is How to Submit to Commercial

Galleries with artist Kristy Gordon who

will unveil the practical steps you can

take to develop a connection with a commercial

gallery. The one-session course

includes a lecture, discussions and individual

feedback.

Deborah Thompson has designed an

online drawing course: Drawing with the

World in Mind. This course will run twice

a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for

the month of October. “The COVID-19

Global Pandemic has highlighted a long

list of global problems; climate change,

homelessness, opioid crisis, racism, classism

and more. Leaning into a creative

practice during these times is helpful

in developing meaningful insights and

in cultivating imaginative ways to give

constructive shape to the future,” says

Thompson.

Many students will be excited that Bessie

Wapp is offering Singing the Blues Goes

Virtual this fall. In this 7-week course

you will explore the rich swamp of the

human voice in a relaxed and supportive

environment through online group

and one-on-one sessions. In November

Rayya Liebich will be offering an online

Poetry Immersion course. From the comfort

of your home immerse yourself in

the language of poetry. Weekly online

classes will focus on studying the craft

of poetry (image, form, feeling) and

allow time for a series of guided writing

prompts to help hone your writing skills.

Also running in November and over

five classes Natasha Smith will be offering

Moving into Abstraction as an online

course. Through a series of hands-on

projects, students will explore various

techniques and alternative ways

to develop ideas and images that will

encourage a more abstract way of

working.

Interdisciplinary artist, prOphecy sun

will be offering an innovative course

this fall: Sonic Imaginaries: An Introduction

to Creating Electronic Compositions.

This online beginner level studio course

explores a wide range of methods and

conceptual approaches to creating electronic

sound. prOphecy explains: “Each

week will explore how sound emerges

and will survey conceptual and methodological

techniques used in music, video,

sound art, and other artistic production.”

Oxygen is committed to helping with

the transition to online programming

and will be offering a free online ZOOM

orientation session for students on September

17 at 5.30pm (pre-registration

required). Email: education@oxygenartcentre.org

to register.

Don’t wait--spaces are limited. Learn

BC Chamber’s Economic

Recovery Submission

The BC Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Recovery Submission

(submitted to Government July 21, 2020), is made up

of 54 policy recommendations focusing on competitiveness,

innovation, and inclusivity respectively. The plan is pan-provincial

in scope and aims to guide the province on stimulating

BC’s economy through measures that support small and

medium enterprises.

The submission recommends a bold new plan that does not

simply return BC to the uncompetitive business conditions

that existed before COVID-19, but rather encourages entrepreneurship

and investment. This strategy will not only undo

the damage inflicted by the pandemic, but will also create

a more competitive, resilient, and prosperous future for all

British Columbians.

How to host a sociallydistanced

Thanksgiving

It’s been a challenging year but celebrating our favourite

holidays can help us to feel busy, happy, and connected. If

you’re planning on hosting a modified Thanksgiving, maintaining

space and comfort is key.

A recent survey found that 74 per cent of people are concerned

about keeping their distance at social gatherings.

With this in mind, try not to let your guests congregate in the

heart of any home, the kitchen! Start meal preparation and

spaced seating plans ahead of time to limit close interactions

in the most commonly used spaces.

Here are a few other tips for hosting a physically distanced

celebration:

Host an intimate event. Invite only a few close family

members or friends and select the largest room in the home

for an informal setup. Without the traditional place-settings,

the host can ensure that guests are kept a safe distance apart.

No potlucks this year. It’s natural for guests to want to

bring a dish to the gathering, but this year it’s best to leave

DON’T BE SHOCKED... when our Electricians

show up on time!

the cooking to the host and keep the menu simple. With no

outside dishes involved, there is no excuse for guests to enter

the kitchen to prepare, heat up or plate their contribution to

the meal.

Preparation is key. Arranging a full Thanksgiving meal

sounds daunting, but with the right planning and tools in

place, it’s possible to host the perfect event, even without

guests’ help in the kitchen. Get the family and/or friends in

your bubble involved in the planning early on. Write a meal

prep timeline and assign names to tasks. Even small children

can help.

Offer guests plated meals to help limit contact and high

touch points. Also, ask guests to wash their hands when they

arrive and before the meal starts for peace of mind.

SUDOKU

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid,

broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve

a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill

each row, column and box. Each number

can appear only once in each row, column

and box. You can figure out the order in

which the numbers will appear by using the

numeric clues already provided in the boxes.

The more numbers you name, the easier it

gets to solve the puzzle!

Interior Health urging

campers to self-monitor

Interior Health (IH) is urging attendees of a camping event

at the Bombi Summit (between Castlegar and Salmo) to selfmonitor

after a large gathering occurred Sept. 12 and 13,

2020.

Interior Health has been alerted to a group of approximately

150 participants who attended the group camping

event. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic when we

learn that people have participated in large gatherings, IH

urges participants to self-monitor for COVID symptoms and

get testing should they develop.

We know COVID-19 is circulating throughout the Interior

Health region. While there was no confirmed case known

to be in attendance at the camping event, the possibility of

COVID-19 exposure is increased significantly when large

groups gather. We urge everyone to keep their bubbles small

and reduce their number of close contacts.

IH reminds everyone of the importance of following

COVID-19 precautions:

• Do not plan or attend gatherings of more than 50

people.

• Stay home and avoid travel if you have symptoms, even

mild ones.

• Maintain physical distancing (two metres apart) and

use masks when distancing is not possible.

• Wash your hands regularly and do not touch your face.

Testing is recommended for anyone experiencing symptoms

of COVID-19, including:

• Fever

• Cough

• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

• Loss of sense of taste or smell

• Other milder symptoms may include: runny nose, fatigue,

body aches (muscles and joints aching), diarrhea,

headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.

Information about testing and public exposures to COVID-

19 throughout the Interior Health region are available here:

https://news.interiorhealth.ca/news/public-exposures/

Answers to frequently asked questions are available on the

British Columbia Centre for Disease Control website, available

Primary care network coming to RDKB

People living in the Kootenay Boundary

region will have better access to primary health

care with the creation and implementation of a

primary care network in the region.

“Team-based care that responds to the

needs of each community is going to be

the backbone of the new primary care system

in BC and will transform how patients’

everyday health-care needs are met today,

tomorrow and beyond,” said Adrian Dix,

Minister of Health. “By establishing new primary

care networks, as part of our primary

care strategy, we are strengthening health

care supports to address long-standing

gaps in everyday health care for people in

BC, including those living in the Kootenay

Boundary region.”

Government will provide $5.3 million in

annual funding to the Kootenay Boundary primary

care network when fully established.

Over the next three years, residents will

benefit from approximately an additional 33

full-time equivalent (FTE) healthcare providers

who will provide better access to primary

care in the communities. This will include family

physicians, nurse practitioners, registered

nurses, allied health professionals, a clinic

pharmacist, an Aboriginal health co-ordinator,

one manager and one administrative support

staff.

The Kootenay Boundary primary care network

involved consultation with the Kootenay

Boundary Aboriginal Services Collaborative.

The Kootenay Boundary Aboriginal Services

Collaborative has representation from the

Ktunaxa Nation, the Okanagan Nation Alliance,

Métis Nation, and the Circle of Indigenous

Nations Society. All partners continue

to be involved in the implementation of the

network.

“I wish to offer congratulations to the provincial

government, the health districts and to

the social investment sector for accomplishing

this outstanding partnership,” said Sophie

Pierre, Elder and former Chief, Ktunaxa

Nation. “When First Nations and Métis benefit

from such collaboration, all people of the

province benefit.”

Allan Louis, Syilx Nation health governance

representative, said: “Syilx (Okanagan) Nation

is pleased to support the announcement of the

primary care network in the Kootenay Boundary.

Improving the health of all Aboriginal

people in Syilx territory is a key goal of Syilx

leadership. Through these innovative collaborations,

we look forward to our continued

progress in implementing our partnership

with Interior Health and the Divisions of Family

Practice.”

The new healthcare providers in the network

will work to attach the approximately 15,250

people who do not have a consistent primary

care provider in the region, while providing

team-based care to residents of the Kootenay

Boundary.

It will address the specific needs of the population,

while ensuring there is a team-based

approach to providing culturally safe care.

These include strengthened supports and services

for:

• better access to chronic disease and

chronic pain management services;

• improved access to services for individuals

with mild to moderate mental health

and substance-use services;

• better co-ordinated services for families

and seniors who are frail and people

with complex health issues;

• improved access to maternity care;

• more access to comprehensive services

for people living in poverty; and

• culturally safe care for Indigenous

peoples.

For people and families, it means getting

faster, better access to their primary care team

or provider, including evenings and weekends,

as well as being connected to appropriate services

and supports in the community.

In addition to family physicians and nurse

practitioners, new positions include registered

nurses, allied health professionals, social workers,

and Aboriginal health co-ordinators.

The Kootenay Boundary primary care network

is a partnership between the Ministry

of Health, Interior Health, Kootenay Boundary

Division of Family Practice, the Ktunaxa

Nation, and the Okanagan Nation Alliance.

The network will serve people in Trail, Castlegar,

Nelson, Nakusp, Kaslo, Grand Forks,

Salmo and surrounding communities.

Adapting dementia

strategies

As steady as our environment can seem at

times, factors beyond our control have the

potential to rapidly change the world around

us. The current COVID-19 situation, natural

disasters and everyday events like an unexpected

illness or need for relocation can be

stressful, exhausting and can dramatically

change our behaviour.

These changes may be felt even more heavily

by West Kootenay residents living with dementia,

and their caregivers. This September, the

Alzheimer Society of BC is offering a free

webinar on strategies for adapting to rapidly

changing circumstances for people living with

dementia and caregivers.

The ability of a person living with dementia

to cope with rapid change can be greatly

affected by physiological changes to the brain

that result in changes to memory, communication

skills, and personality. Knowing how to

work together while respecting the individuality

of people living with dementia is crucial

to successfully navigating rapidly changing

circumstances.

Behaviours have a reason

When a person living with dementia acts

in a way that may appear strange or out of the

ordinary, they are often doing so to communicate

a need or to meet a need. For example,

pacing can indicate a need to get outside and

walk, while also being a way to expend energy.

Understanding why a behaviour is occurring

can help you to strategize ways to respond and

meet the needs of the person.

Take time to reduce stress

Being the care partner of a person living

with dementia can be stressful and at times,

all-consuming. Take time to de-stress and

enjoy yourself. Meeting your own needs is crucial

to being able to fulfill this responsibility.

Unplug

Though being aware of current events is critical

to our ability to respond to rapidly changing

circumstances, obsessing over the news

can be anxiety-producing and detrimental to

our response to these circumstances. Limit

time spent absorbing worrying information.

To learn more about adapting to caregiving

and living with dementia in a rapidly changing

environment, you can participate in the

Alzheimer Society of BC’s upcoming webinar

Responsive Behaviours in a Changing Environment.

It runs on Wednesday, September 23 at

To learn more about what services are available

to you, tune into Accessing services during

Take a hike, take a photo, and you could win amazing prizes!

It’s Forest Week in BC (Sept 20-26) and the West Kootenay

EcoSociety wants to keep the spotlight on forest issues like the

disappearing old growth forests in the West Kootenay and what

that means for us. We rely on healthy forests for clean water and

air, and for access to natural spaces to help keep our minds healthy

too. Unique local animals also rely on special features only found

in old growth forests. With healthy old forests, our communities

have a better chance at adapting to climate change issues like

increases in flooding, drought, landslides, and forest fires.

Get out and share your photos of you with amazing plants and

animals. We need your help to protect these unique and beautiful

forests from being logged. Show us why they are important

to you!

Share your photos by September 29, 2020. Prize winners will be
