CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
In 1986 a small group of birders held the first official Audubon Christmas Bird count on Lasqueti Island. Please join us again for this annual event on Friday December 30. Everyone is welcome to take part. You can count the birds you see out your window or join a team and spend the day. Keep track of the distance covered and the time spent and of course the birds seen.
Hello dear Lasquetians, if you are able to share baking, canned treats or any other stocking stuffers - traditional or unusual - they will be greatly appreciated. So far there are 20-25 recipients, our loved elders!
To suggest a recipient, to donate, or simply help with the parcels, please contact Wendy S. 8632, Jodi 8714 or Aigul 607-8008 by phone or email.
Holiday Greetings Neighbors and friends. Dark days and long nights are upon us but that’s no reason to stay indoors! Time to take a hike!
LINC is once again sponsoring a guided hike to the Lasqueti Ecological Reserve on News Years Day 2023. Get out and work off that holiday cheer, breath fresh air and experience some of Lasqueti’s spectacular natural areas.
LASQUETI MINI SOLAR PROJECT
I am asking if people are willing to donate or loan solar panels they are no longer using, and also charge controllers and other similar stuff (including cables and wire) that's being stored in or near sheds around the island.
My plan is to put together simple, small systems and lend them to people who currently have no solar capacity. . I'm not planning to provide batteries or lighting fixtures.
