With the aim of connecting with others to improve the SENS' positive community work, local groups will present briefly about what they do, provide a short future-wish-list, then discuss positive actions in break-out sessions.
Join us to help move Vernon towards a sustainable, regenerative region. Your ideas are welcome!
SENS director Terry Dyck will present numerous pages of a petition to ban cosmetic pesticides and ask Council to honour their recent vote to become a “Blue Dot” community by implementing a ban. Far too much valid proof already exists, to dispute the major damage to us and our environment from cosmetic pesticides.
Wear a blue shirt and attend to show your support.
The Foothills Community Association seeks your endorsement for the creation of a natural park to be situated above the developed part of Foothills (Please be assured that any endorsement in no way entails financial commitment.)
Such a park would provide spectacular views over all of Greater Vernon, preserve habitat in an area formally identified as ecologically sensitive, and link to the Grey Canal Trail and thus add to a necklace of parks and trails that serve as a gateway to Silver Star. The area under consideration has spectacular rocky bluffs and already has rough trails which provide access to viewpoints via a nearly flat route, as well as offering more physically demanding paths to access them. It would provide a restful place for peaceful personal renewal where one could enjoy the panoramic views, wildlife in its natural setting and be a destination for tourists.
