On Saturday, April 16, the KHC held its 5th annual Hike for Wildlife event, a twist on the ‘Walk for Wildlife’ national campaign promoted by the Canadian Wildlife Federation to encourage Canadians to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors.
This year we had 17 members and 2 guests in attendance for the event. All the guest fees and donations collected that day went to the CWF. In total, we raised $158!
The highlight of this year’s hike was the instalment of 5 Western Bluebird houses along the fence line that surrounds Long Lake in the Lac du Bois Grasslands. Our feathered friends would like to thank KHC members Matt Treger, Joanna Battjes , and Michelle Dressler for assisting in the creation of their new homes, as well as artists Emily R, Claire N, Molly S, Ella S and Chris S for their decorative painting.
The new homes will be monitored periodically by our club and hopefully bluebirds will take residence in them this year. For more information about the Kamloops Bluebird program you can contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org
