Unfortunately the 2016 No-Wake Flotilla will likely not be happening this year. If you are interested in volunteering to organize the event and find sponsorship please contact the Kingfisher Interpretive Center.
The Lower Shuswap Stewardship Society is dissolving and merging its assets with the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre. Water testing at Mara bridge will continue. We had many wonderful successes and made a difference with our restoration projects. Huge thanks to Jean Clark for being our main leader all these years and to Jessica Washtock who has been there from the start. We accomplished our goals and more!
