Expanding Our Roots
Evans Lake Forest Education Society Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Hart Banack, Executive Director
It is with much pride and honor that Evans Lake announces it 50th Anniversary to be celebrated this June 26 and 27, 2010 at the beautiful Evans Lake Forest Education Centre, north of Squamish.
Since its founding in 1960 by the Junior Forest Wardens, Evans Lake has been a home in the forest to thousands of children. At Evans Lake, our tasks are to create meaningful relationships between youth and a better understanding of our forest ecosystem, realizing that such knowledge creates strong, healthy people. Participants take part in hands-on courses that make connections between our forests, soils, water and wildlife and their lifestyle choices.
For the 50th Anniversary, Evans Lake will host an Appetizers and Dance on the evening of June 26, 2010 for all alumni at our facility north of Squamish. We are looking forward to gathering together Evans Lake campers and staff from the present and past to share stories, memories and celebrate the meaningful impact Evans Lake had on their lives. The celebration continues on June 27th, 2010 at our annual Open House from 11AM to 3 PM at camp. Come join in the Evans Lake activities and relive Evans Lake history at this Homecoming event!!
In recognition of our 50th Anniversary, Evans Lake is creating a Commemorative Book that will highlight the past 50 years of the camp. This is a keepsake not to be missed!
