This event will be a chance for the South Central Branch members and their families to give back to our community and help the centre with a few cleanup and maintenance projects. A few of the things that the centre would like us to help them with include: brush clearing; painting, and general site cleanup. So grab your favourite work duds, gloves & boots etc.

There may be some "chain saw music" happening as well, so if you like that sort of thing, bring your favourite eardrum protection too.

For our help, the centre will provide us with a great BBQ lunch. You are encouraged to bring your family and make a day of it! If you are bringing spouses and children please include them as guests when you register.

The McQueen Lake Environmental Education Centre is located just 16.5 km northwest of Kamloops, BC (view map) and is a proud part of the Kamloops Thompson School District #73. The centre offers outstanding accommodation for students, while maintaining natural surroundings for them to explore and learn.
