ACTIVITIES
The site will be set up with 26 activity stations and you are free to wander and join any activities you are interested in.  You will be provided with a booklet and map when you enter the festival that gives more detail.
11:30 am   Raptor Show – the only scheduled show
The Duncan Raptor Centre will be joining us this year for an exciting show!  The students will be introduced to 3-4 different raptors and have the opportunity to watch them fly across the spawning channels while the staff speak about them. This is very exciting and should ignite a passion for the birds in your students.  The show will be approximately 30 – 45 minutes long.

BUSES, VEHICLES, DROP-OFF, PARKING and PICK-UP:
  • Please note that there is NO parking at the site or at Lightfoot Gas Station.  Buses and vehicles can drop people off at the site by following the signs.  Then buses and vehicles can park just down the road at the old Shantyman/Pizzarama site (again there will be signs to direct you).
  • A shuttle bus will then transport any drivers or other community members who are coming back to the event.
  • At the end of the student’s day the buses can come back to the pick-up location to load students.
  • THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL!!

Sekw’el’was Traditional Land and Resource Management Capacity Building Project

The Sekw’el’was Community has been working with Splitrock Environmental on a project that aims to build the capacity of the community to manage their traditional lands and resources. This project started in 2017, and so far has included training two new land-use advisors in field surveying, GIS mapping, and data management. With the success of the project so far, plans are rolling ahead to provide additional training and mentorship, and adding support to the decision-making process.

For more information on the project, and why it is important to the Sekw’el’was Community, check out this short video: https://vimeo.com/266740910
