Join Mainstreams for a hike to Eimer’s Lake this Thursday. Kimberley Nature Park file

Mainstreams offers another water education evening

The Kimberley Nature Park is part of what makes Kimberley unique and special. We are lucky to have this large park situated right beside town.

Thursday, June 7 from 6:30 – 8pm, Mainstreams is hosting the 4th event in their spring series celebrating our local watershed. The Eimer’s Wetland Walk will be led by Laura Duncan, with a focus on native plants. In the relatively short distance from the Higgins Street entrance to Eimer’s Lake we witness some of the incredible diversity of ecosystems and therefore, plant life within the park.

Duncan is an avid naturalist with a vast range of experience and wisdom to offer. The nature park has been her backyard for over 40 years. “It’s always a surprise what appears when we take the time to look and listen,” she says, “at this time of year plants can change drastically even within a day. It is so inspiring.”

We will meet at the College of the Rockies parking lot on Warren Ave at 6:30pm. Rain or shine, the walk is on. Dress appropriately. Different things are seen depending on the weather, it is always beautiful to be out.

For more information and updates on this or the next 2 events of this series, Knapweed Pull ‘N Learn June 14 & Water Celebration June 21, follow the Mainstreams Facebook page or contact Shannon (250)427-7981.

Mainstreams is looking for community members interested in committing to a ‘Streamers’ group, engaged in learning about and stewarding our watershed – a precious resource we literally can’t live without.

These events are made possible thanks to funding from BC Hydro, Columbia Basin Trust and the East Kootenay Invasive Species Council.
