July 20, 2023 – Community Weed Pull, Info Session and Pizza Party!

Join us on the shores of beautiful Kootenay Lake and help us get rid of invasive plants! To thank you for your efforts there will be a FREE pizza lunch at Lakeside Park.  Family friendly event and all ages are welcome.

Co-hosted by Living Lakes Canada and Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society, this half-day event will include a weed pull followed by an info session that will cover all things Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). You will learn what AIS are, their impacts and how they spread. You will learn the simple actions you can make when working & playing around water to prevent the spread, and  finally we will cover AIS identification, reporting, and management.

Your knowledge will then get put to the test during a FUN game of Jeopardy. The top scoring team will walk away with some prizes.
