This September Slocan Valley Recreation has several interesting programs coming up, but they are going to start the season by having you climbing a wall – literally.

Jody and Wendy Knight operate Bear Rock Climbing and they have recently moved to Slocan Park. You may recognize them because they have an eight-metre tall portable climbing wall.

To help everyone get the opportunity to experience the wall, they’ll be offering a free afternoon of climbing instruction on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 4-7 p.m. at the Slocan Park Hall.

All ages are welcome and it’ll be first come-first climb. There’ll also be lessons available throughout the rest of the month for those wishing to pursue them.

Also coming up quickly you can get insights of the trials and rewards associated with Getting Off The Grid when Val Mayes and Gary Yakimchuk share their experiences on Sunday, Sept. 18.

Shanoon Bennett returns on Sept. 24 for the Native Edibles Harvest Walk, where she completes the cycle focusing on the roots, berries and fruits of  a variety of beneficial native plants.

The P.A.L. and C.O.R.E. Hunter Training Programs are also happening at Winlaw School in September, beginning the weekend of  Sept. 17.

  • The Fall Leisure Guide for Slocan Valley Recreation will be out at the end of August so make sure to check it out for all the great programs coming up.
