Starting next Thursday (Aug. 10), the Revelstoke Wildflower Festival will make its return to the community for another year of wildflower-themed events.

The event will run from Aug. 10–13, bringing a weekend of fun. The festival is made possible through a collection of sponsors and volunteers, including Parks Canada, the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society (CSISS), and the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre (RVAC). The festival has expanded from last year and will have more events for wildflower enthusiasts to take part in.

All the events will get underway on Thursday (Aug. 10), with three 10 a.m. starts. The invasive species education station will be at Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR), the wildflower photography workshop will be at RVAC, and the invasive plant workshop will be at Mt. Revelstoke National Park.

Later on Thursday, Mount Revelstoke National Park will also host the first alpine adaptations wildflower walk of the weekend at 2 p.m., which will be free for those with a park pass. Starting at 3 p.m. at RMR will host the edible invasives plant I.D. walk.
