The Audubon society has posted an interesting DIY article regarding what to do with all those pumpkins sitting around after Halloween.
While we in the West Kootenays need to consider the impacts to bears, these feeders do present an option, and may well prove quite helpful for the species who over-winter here.
The Columbia Mountains Institute has provided a completed Predator–Prey Dynamics conference collections page which can be found by clicking here. This is a great resource that can help build your knowledge on a key conservation issue for the Kootenays and beyond.
Many folks around the lake are concerned about the fisheries decline on Kootenay Lake. The following is a list of resources and links to get more informed on the action being taken by the Province and other partners to recover the Kootenay Lake fisheries.
On June 16th, 2016 90 people attended a public meeting in Balfour to receive an update on the Kootenay Lake Fisheries Action Plan.
Here is the action plan: KLAP Kootenay Lake Action PLan final 9_May_2016

In April 2016, the Province will introduce a new online system that will improve the overall efficiency of hunter services. Initially the online service will be for Limited Entry Hunting (LEH) applications. In the future, the system will integrate a range of online services for hunters, including licensing.
Hunters will have 24-hour online access to hunting services from any computer with an internet connection and will be able to view and track their Limited Entry Hunting applications online.
To provide access to the new system, hunter numbers will be replaced with a new Fish and Wildlife ID (FWID).
Hunters with an existing hunter number will be assigned a FWID (which will include their old hunter number) and a Resident Hunting Credential. New hunters will need to register and apply for their FWID and Resident Hunting Credential.
