June 27th, 2015 – Biodiversity Bonanza – Ignite the biologist spark in your kid!

FREE Kids Event to Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of CKISS

Saturday June 27th, 2015 1pm-4pm 
Old Church Hall, 602 Kootenay St, Nelson BC

Did you know that invasive species are the 2nd greatest threat to biodiversity?
Luckily in 2005 a non-profit group called CKISS (aka CKIPC); Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society was formed to raise awareness and prevent further introduction and spread of invasive species within the Central Kootenays. We’re hosting a party for kids (and parents) to celebrate 10 years of contributing to the protection of the beautiful landscapes, ecosystems and lakes in Nelson and surrounding area.  On Saturday June 27th CKISS is hosting a Biodiversity Bonanza. This free fun event was designed to inspire Kootenay kids to go into nature and look at the relationship between living things and the environment. 

Come join us for a fun filled afternoon with:

  • Games
  • Scavenger hunt
  • Cupcakes
  • Arts and Crafts

Special guests appearances by:

  • Bubbles the clown
  • Cassia Barrett Face Painting
  • KAST/GLOWS – Growing, learning opportunities with science
  • Wildsafe BC
