Do you have any questions about Strathcona Park and its fascinating plants, wildlife or history?
Are you interested in taking an easy day hike or exploring some of the challenging back country?
Would you like to learn more about the Strathcona Wilderness Institute? Would you like to be part of Strathcona Wilderness Institute’s special 20th anniversary celebrations held this summer?
Then be sure to attend the 20th Annual General Meeting of Strathcona Wilderness Institute, Wednesday May 6 in the Evergreen Lounge (lower floor) at the Florence Filberg Centre (411 Anderton, Courtenay), from 7-9 p.m.
As a non-profit organization, the Strathcona Wilderness Institute board of directors will answer questions about Strathcona Park and their summer programs at the Paradise Meadows Wilderness Information Centre, or at the Information Centre at Buttle Lake.
Lindsay Elms (a fascinating mountain climber & historian) will be presenting a short slide show.
The SWI is always looking for new volunteers, members, new ideas, and new skills. If you have fundraising skills, event planning experience, communications experience, organizational skills, park and trail knowledge, building experience (repair etc,) you are always welcome. Or if you do not have experience, but are willing to learn, you are also very welcome.
We also wish to give a special welcome to potential younger volunteers who are in high school or college who care about their beautiful park and wish to contribute and learn about preserving and educating the public about the Strathcona Wilderness. This would potentially be a great experience to put on your resume for future possible job opportunities.
We are also looking for new directors this year.Refreshments will be served. For more information please see strathconaparkblogspot.ca/
