Community clean up

• April 13, 12 p.m.

The snow is melting fast and exposing a season’s worth of waste, so let’s get together and beautify our community!

A clean up event encouraging families, friends, peers, and students to get out into the community and collect the waste uncovered after the spring melt.

You can sign up as a team (family, friends, co-workers), get assigned a location and begin the clean sweep!

No team? No problem! Individuals can meet outside of the Revelstoke Aquatic Centre (600 Campbell Ave.) and travel along the greenbelt, or towards downtown.

Bring your collected waste to the Aquatic Centre at 3 p.m., for free disposal.

Bags and gloves will be provided. Prizes will be awarded for most waste collected (by volume). Contact the North Columbia Environmental Society for more information. 250-683-8721.

Caribou Recovery Plan consultation

• April 15, 5:30 p.m.

The B.C. Government is hosting engagement sessions to review two draft caribou recovery agreements. The session will provide an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on the draft Section 11 Agreement and the draft Partnership Agreement.

Trashion show

• Revelstoke Legion

Trashion-fashionable items made from found or recycled materials

In honor of Earth Month (April), Birch & Lace will be hosting their fourth annual Trashion Show Contest. This year they are moving the event downtown to the Revelstoke Legion!

They are encouraging participants to enter the contest by designing and creating an outfit out of recycling and garbage. We will then showcase these outfits with a fashion/trashion show.

There will be prizes for winners of the contest and a stellar silent auction for event goers—all of the money raised will be donated to the North Columbia Environmental Society and a global clean water advocacy group.
