In April, the office of the Minister of Environment notified the Friends of West Kootenay Parks (FWKP) for 2013 they were selected as BC Parks’ Volunteer Group of the Year.

In addition to projects such as restoration of the Pilot Bay lighthouse and trail maintenance in Kokanee Park, FWKP also helps to support hiring of students to work at the Kokanee Creek Park Visitors Centre.

To help with that program, they are having two art based fundraiser events July 21 and August 23 and 24.  Artists wishing to participate in these 50/50 fundraisers should contact Ron Robinson for an information package.

He can be reached at robinson4065@gmail.com or by phone at 250-352-9898.
