Celebrate winter Sunday in the Slocan

The cooperative is inviting the public to this event to celebrate the 25-year tenure

This coming Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., Slocan Integral Forestry Cooperative is hosting a free family-oriented Winter Celebration day at Valley View Golf Club in Appledale. The cooperative is inviting the public to this event to celebrate the 25-year tenure it has just been granted, to manage over 35,000 acres of land in the Slocan Valley.

In partnership with the Slocan Valley Recreation Commission and Rails to Trails, they will have a cross-country ski track set as well as snowshoes available for your use. Between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. test your speed and grace on your skis or snowshoes compared with your neighbours in a short timed-start competition. The rest of the afternoon the track will be open for everyone’s use. A silent auction will be held indoors with a chance to win a custom concrete bench generously donated by Molded Stone of Winlaw.

For kids they will have a shorter timed-race on skis starting at 12:30 p.m., a small scavenger hunt on the property starting at 2 p.m., and tobogganing. Inside the clubhouse there will be several interactive stations set up for children of different ages where everyone can learn about the forest we live in.

They will also have free hot chocolate and a bonfire all afternoon. At 3 p.m. inside the clubhouse, there will be short welcome speech and free cake to celebrate the cooperative’s tenure.

Come celebrate with the cooperative. After eight years of work, they have reached a major milestone towards community control of watersheds and sustainable logging practices.
