TNCC at the Kamloops Art Festival


TNCC’s Conservation Program Intern, Alex Bruvold, attended the Kamloops Children’s Art Festival with Kamloops Naturalist Club and Nature Kids BC on September 16 to engage youth in ways we can help protect and conserve the species that live in the Thompson-Nicola Watershed and the environments they live in.

Each year, the Children’s Art Festival has a theme for the event, and this year the theme was Ranches to Rodeos. To match this, TNCC provided families with colouring sheets that demonstrated ways in which people can practice agriculture without disturbing species at risk in the Thompson-Nicola Watershed. TNCC also provided the organization’s own stewardship resources related to agriculture in riparian areas: Grazing at the Waters Edge and Stewarding Riparian Areas.

This event was a great opportunity for TNCC to connect with the Kamloops community, share some of TNCC’s resources and talk about species at risk in the Thompson-Nicola Watershed.
