Great work this weekend!

Thanks so much for reporting the large garbage pile just north of Lac du Bois Lake and for being so willing to help clean it and other piles up and for organizing the volunteers to clean it and other piles up. Please express my utmost gratitude to your friends. I know Barb Pryce from the Nature Conservancy of Canada is extremely grateful as well. I did not expect such a large group of volunteers or that you would all remove 1200kg of garbage from the Protected Area and the NCC Lands. WOW! That is amazing!

I am always so shocked by the tenacity of a small percentage of people to be so complacent and dump garbage in the Protected Area and I am always so grateful that there are so many incredible people in the community of Kamloops who are willing to help BC Parks clean it up because they care so much about the Protected Area and their community!

Thanks again,

Amanda Weber-Roy.

As a flatlander from Manitoba I have always been captivated by the mountains of the west. Moving to Kamloops has provided me with the perfect base camp to explore those very peaks that pulled our family west. My typical hiking style can be summed up with "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". Bushwhacking has become an acceptable form of travel for me as it seems that a lot of the great spots are off trail. Hikes done by myself and Marty tend to fall into this category so don't be surprised if this happens on a Marant hike. You can find more information at Happy Hiking!
