Counting Birds with the Young Naturalist Club

On Sunday, December 15th, over a dozen members of the Kamloops Young Naturalist Club got together to perform the 3rd Annual Christmas Bird Count for Kids. This annual event is a great opportunity for kids to learn all about birds while doing a bird count, just like the adults. Armed with binoculars, bird guidebooks and a bright sunny afternoon, they immediately got to work at the task at hand.

Filling Hampers with Food for Christmas Amalgamated

It’s the Christmas season and I’m sure most families are taxed enough as it is. However, Christmas Amalgamated is still looking to fill their food hampers for families.

Christmas Amalgamated is a registered federal charity in Kamloops, BC. that provides approved, qualifying families a food hamper made up of everything they would need to cook a full Christmas dinner, as well as a toy for each child in the family. The toys are new, unwrapped, and are generously donated by the public or local businesses either directly to Christmas Amalgamated or donated via the “Toys for Kids” toy-drive.

For anyone wishing to help contribute to the filling of food hampers, the following can be dropped off at the Christmas Amalgamated depot (there are no refrigerators or freezers in the building so all donations must be non-perishable):

A Gift Certificate for a Turkey ($25)
Potatoes
Stuffing
