Tree Planting Details

The Heartland Economics Tree Planing Fundraiser is all set to go!  Sunday is “full” but we still have a bit of room on Saturday for those that are late signing up.

As before, planting bags and shovels will be available in limited quantities (feel free to bring along your own shovel).  Planting supervision and training will be provided  for those that are new to it.  This is a great way to help raise funds for the upcoming ski season and also do something positive for our environment.

It is up to you to arrange your own transportation to and from the site, but car pooling is always a good idea.  The crew will marshal at 9 am at 10km on Brenda Mine Rd., then drive to the block together from there.

ACCESS NOTES: To get to the block drive to Peachland and turn right (if you are coming from Kelowna) at the third set of traffic lights to go up Princeton Avenue.  Follow Princeton Ave. until it turns to gravel and keep on going.  The gravel starts at 0 km, stay on the main road (gravel) and keep right at approx. 6km .  The road turns back to pavement, keep going until 10km and turn right into Silver Lake camp. We will meet here by the Large SILVER LAKE CAMP sign.  Then we will drive as a group to 10.5km and turn left.  Follow the road until 15 km – keep left there – we are planting at the first outblock after that.  Silver Lake Access 2014

The tree plant will go ahead rain or shine, so see you there!
