We gathered with excited families on Saturday, August 8th to officially open the Nature Play Area onsite. Kids each got their own pair of scissors so that everyone could participate in the ribbon cutting. Linette Miller, Branch Manager of Lacombe's TD Bank was on hand to present the cheque to Site Biologist Myrna Pearman and Project Manager Kirstin Bouwsema. The Nature Play Area is a cozy area where kids can build and play with sticks and pinecones, rocks and stumps. There is a playhouse and a treehouse to explore and all kinds of loose parts for the imagination to run wild.
We are so grateful for how this project came together with project development by Kirstin Bouwsema, the support, encouragement and hard work of site biologist Myrna Pearman, the grant funding of TD Bank Friends of the Environment Fund and the artistry, creative eye and labour of Wayne Froese of Top Peg Timber Frame Construction.
