Columbia Lake winter celebration planned

Celebrate winter fun with the Nature Conservancy of Canada on December 14th.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada is hosting its 2nd annual Winter Celebration on Marion Creek Benchlands. The community is invited to come out on December 14 from 11 to 2 to enjoy winter games and warm treats in a beautiful setting overlooking Columbia Lake.

Everyone should come prepared to stay warm and have fun! Guests of all ages are encouraged to bring equipment to play hockey, skate, cross-country ski, snowshoe, sled or just hang out around a bonfire.

Guests will also be treated to complimentary hotdogs and beverages.

A limited number of trees will be made available to cut for home Christmas Trees. The select trees are a legacy of a Christmas tree farm that operated on the property in the 1970s. At the time the property was known as Santa’s Forest. Guests wanting to harvest a tree should bring any tools required to cut and transport their tree.
