Wildsight Golden loves the natural environment

Golden Star Staff

Wildsight Golden is looking for people to join in projects and celebrate a love of nature by sharing stories and images.

Pecha Kucha is a Japanese style of storytelling, and to get involved and have your story told, share via e-mail to golden@wildsight.ca, including up to five images prior to March 11 to be put together for projection at the annual general meeting. Each person is granted two minutes to share their stories and images.

The event theme is “global biodiversity, everything matters.” Wildsight Golden is hosting the Pecha Kucha, inviting people to join in projects involving the beautiful local environment. They are looking for people interested in joining the volunteer board or helping to oversee programs and projects.

“Working as a volunteer with Wildsight is a good way to contribute to our community and learn new skills and knowledge,” Wildsight Golden stated in a press release. “Our board members and volunteers also have been known to have a few interesting adventures out in the natural world. Some of our volunteers work very few hours, and some many hours. All are valued for their contributions.”

Lifetime memberships with Wildsight Golden are available at www.wildsight.ca. As extra incentive for becoming a member, a signed print by artist Regan Johnson is available to be won.

The print is on display at Golden’s Okanagan Regional Library branch.

Those who join Wildsight Golden before March 12 are entered to win the print.

The draw will be done at the end of the annual general meeting on March 13, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the St. Andrew’s Centre for Peace.

Wildsight works in large-scale conservation, sustainable communities, initiatives, and environmental education. The program’s work focuses on the Kootenay Region, and Wildsight Golden focuses on Golden’s community. Wildsight has five autonomous branches in Golden, Invermere, Kimberley/Cranbrook, Creston, and Elk Valley.

For more information, contact Wildsight Golden’s outreach coordinator Leslie Adams at 250-344-5530 or golden@wildsight.ca.
