You are invited...To the White Lake Iris Pull! (Spread the word, not the invasive species!)
When: Saturday, October 27, 2012
9:00 pm - PANCAKE BREAKFAST WILL BE SERVED AT 9am! COME AND WARM YOUR INSIDES WITH HOT COFFEE AND A PANCAKE BEFORE LAUNCHING INTO THE WET, SOGGY MARSH Breakfast served by STA volunteers. Lunch will be provided by Tim Horton`s. (Thanks to BC Parks and Tim Horton`s for providing event refreshments.)
Highlights of the Day:
BC Parks is co-hosting the White Lake Iris Pull. There will be prizes, warming stations, BC Parks biologist on location to assist, and lots of food. Come join the community in this effort to clean up our wetland. White Lake is one of the treasures of the Shuswap, and we appreciate the help in keeping it clean and functioning. Take home lessons learned back to the wetland and trails in your own backyard!
Shovels and tools will be provided by the STA (unless you really need your favourite shovel!), and gloves for everyone from BC Parks (it really is a mucky job. Wear old clothes!). Bring hip waders, warm socks, rubber boots. If you are a snorkler or scuba diver and would like to do some underwater work, there is a patch of water lilies that need to be dug out. Could be interesting! Bring along your gear. Throw your canoe or kayak in, if you`d like to take a paddle. (There are a couple boats here to borrow.)
RSVP to Carmen Massey (we want to have enough food for you:)). 250-835-8766 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you all there!
