SIFCo hosted their 2020 AGM last week. We had a wonderful turn out and would like to announce our two new board members, Tyler Abbot who will be representing the Winlaw Watershed Committee (WWC) and Gary Parkstrom who will be representing the Red Mountain Road Association (RMRA). It was great to see everyone and we look forward to meeting again next year!
Our new season is scheduled to start on September 20th. Our crews will be working in the Anderson Creek and Bannock Point areas. If you have any questions in regards this work please do not hesitate to contact us.
The summer of 2020 has unfortunately witnessed a dramatic decrease in the collective care of Bannock Point Recreation Site. Examples include: - Large amounts of garbage are being left behind - Vandalism - Two camp fires escaped - Live trees have been cut This general lack of respect has put a stress on the space itself and has caused threat to the local communities. Please help us keep Bannock Point Recreation Site FREE, EASILY ACCESSIBLE and BEAUTIFUL: 1. Take out everythin
