We would like to extend a huge thanks to the Community Foundation of Whistler and the American Friends of Whistler for their generous support which allowed us to purchase this tent, table cover, table, and display material. We are so much more effective in delivering educational material at public events with this fantastic looking set-up! It was put to good use at our recent Invasive Species Community Information Session and Pemberton Farmers Market. Come visit us at the upcoming "Crafty by Nature" event in Whistler this Saturday August 31st, the Squamish Farmer's Market the following Saturday (Sept 5th), and the next Saturday (Sept 12th) at the Brackendale Fall Fair. 

Breanne and Kalenna set up and ready to spread awareness and offer advice about invasive species at our recent Community Information Session.
