WildSafeBC wants to know how you help to keep wildlife wild and your community safe in the Columbia Valley! Send us an original drawing that describes this theme, and you could win a prize and have your drawing featured in the Pioneer! We’ve got a gift certificate to Peppi’s Pizza and more to give away!
All you have to do is draw a picture showing how you and your family help to reduce or prevent wildlife conflict at home. For inspiration, visit https://wildssafebc.com and click through the different links to read some suggestions about what you can do to help keep wildlife wild within your community. Examples can vary from keeping garbage in a certified bin (or inside your house or garage), to taking birdfeeders down at the end of the summer. Bonus points will be awarded for creativity!
• Artist’s name
