Plans for logging in the Glade watershed are being met with resistance in the community of 300 people on the east side of Kootenay River. The Glade Watershed Protection Society (GWPS) is concerned that the proposed logging will affect the quality of the water and could result in expensive treatment systems being needed.
What better way to enjoy our beautiful Kootenay winter than an evening of guided snowshoeing or fat biking under the moonlight with friends and family? Get ready for a great evening out in our second annual Moonlight Snowshoe & Fatbike Quest featuring excellent food, outdoor fun, adventure and prizes - all in support of a great cause!
