Trashion; fashionable items made from found or recycled materials
In honor of Earth Month (April), Birch & Lace will be hosting their 4th annual Trashion Show Contest. This year we are moving the event downtown to the Revelstoke Legion!
We are encouraging participants to enter our contest by designing & creating an outfit out of recycling & garbage. We will then showcase these outfits with a Fashion / Trashion Show. There will be prizes for winners of the contest and a stellar silent auction for event goers – all of the money raised will be donated to the North Columbia Environmental Society and a global clean water advocacy group.
Some ways you can be involved:
Participate: Entry forms are available online: http://birchandlacesalon.com/
Donate: This is a good opportunity to support community & show you care about waste diversion and our planet, help us put together an amazing silent auction and prize packs for contestants. Donations with a value of $50 or more are eligible for charitable tax receipts.

The Bear Necessities Workshop Series continues with its second spring workshop:
Electric Fence Workshop
with Gillian Sanders
Revelstoke Rec Centre, Macpherson Room
For more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/2258765347725724/
Get ready for the summer season and protect your beehives, fruit and nut trees and chickens from bears, in turn you’ll also be protecting bears against habituation. As it turns out setting up and taking down an electric fence can be super simple! Learn how.
Workshop leader Gillian Sanders has helped to install 150 electric fences to successfully protect livestock and/or fruit trees from both black and grizzly bears. Correctly installed and maintained electric fencing provides a cost effective and easy solution to prevent or stop bear conflicts. This workshop will discuss different electric fencing designs for permanent and temporary fences that can be adapted to your particular needs.
The workshop will begin indoors for an overview of the different types of electric fences and the best solutions for us in Revelstoke. Then we will venture outdoors for a demonstration on how easy it is to set up an electric fence yourself!
Help keep bears wild and our community safe. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Workshops are by donation or free for Revelstoke Bear Aware members.
Thank you to our sponsors Columbia Basin Trust and LUSH for helping to make this workshop possible.
