Sixteen new interpretive signs will be unveiled by the Friends of Churn Creek on April 21.
“Last year when B.C. facilitated its 100th anniversary celebration we facilitated the building of a new kiosk in the traditional style of a pit house,” says Friends of Churn Creek society director Steve Mazur.
“The panels are in the kiosk and detail the natural, cultural, ranching, settlement and geological history of the area.”
In 2012, through the province’s community recreation grant received by the Cariboo Regional District, the society will also build a wheelchair-accessible trail at the kiosk.
Mazur says the society will need some help if anyone is interested in volunteering.
The society’s AGM takes place on April 21, starting at 10:30 a.m. in the Dog Creek community gym. It’ll be a short meeting followed by a lunch and the unveiling, Mazur says, adding there’ll be a short little hike for anyone that is interested.
Churn Creek Protected Area, located one hour and 40 minutes south of Williams Lake, has been a protected area since 1998. The society was formed three years ago and was registered two years ago. More information about the society is available at www.friendsofchurn.ca.
