Water and waste wise craft event Friday

Scout Island's Waste Wise Earth Friendly Holiday Event is coming back again this year.

Those who participated in Scout Island’s Waste Wise Earth Friendly Holiday Event last year had so much fun that organizers are bringing the event back again this year, says nature centre co-ordinator Jenny Noble.

The event takes place Friday evening Nov. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Noble says there will be lots of decorating ideas for adults and kids.

Participants can make nature-inspired creations such as garlands and bark art, make a holiday wreath or bird feeder, try a rag wreath, check out the alternative gift ideas table and more.

There will be children’s games and activities, opportunity for a night walk under the stars, exchange baked goods and preserves and more.

Come as you are, bring a snack to share if you can, and if you made a wreath last year, bring your metal frame, Noble says. For more information contact the centre at 250-398-7929 or 250-398-8532.
