It is goind to be a beautiful sunny day Saturday and the Love the Lake Fun Family Day will be a great way to spend part of the day at Pigeon Lake.

Ideally for families – interested adults may also be interested in the nature walk with experts, talking to experts about water quality, the PLWA about the work being done for the lake or the live bird banding.  There will be two nets set up to catch songbirds.  These will be monitored and birds banded quickly by experts alongside an explanation of why and what banding tells us about our world.

The Mulhurst fire crew is now bringing the big truck over for added fun between 10 and 11 – many people are confused by the Firesmart program and the PLWA encouraging people to add plants – well, we are not at odds, as more plants hold moisture in the ground, releasing it over time to the lake (lake likes) and reducing the risk and or extent of fire.

We will also have displays and order forms of the native wildflowers and grass seed packages.  Most of the plants are Firesmart approved.  There will be three pallets to showcase a combination for a pollinator garden, a wildflower garden in the sun and one for shady spots.  All these help clean the water before it enters the lake and adds beauty and interest to your lot.

Go to http://www.plwa.ca/item/1060708 for more information on the rest of the wonderful activities available for everyone at the PL Provincial Park Day Use area.

Come join the fun, learn more about the lake and have a wonderful day!

When: Tomorrow, August 20th, 2016 at 10am – 2pm

Where: The Provincial Park Day Use Area
