CSRD assists with Everything Shuswap

Columbia Shuswap Regional District electoral area directors dug into their grant-in-aid funds to help get Everything Shuswap to press

Columbia Shuswap Regional District electoral area directors dug into their grant-in-aid funds to help get Everything Shuswap to press.

“We don’t have a general budget for this but the area directors have stepped forward and I have found $2,000 out of general funds,” said financial services manager Jodi Kooistra at the May 21 board meeting in Salmon Arm.

Area C South Shuswap will provide $2,000, Area D Falkland/Salmon Valley/Ranchero $250, Area E Rural Sicamous $250 and Area F North Shuswap $1,500.

Based on 10 years worth of columns that have appeared in the Shuswap Market News, Everything Shuswap is an educational tool that has been approved for use by School District #83.

Along with a tour of the amazing watershed, the first volume delves into the geology and ecology of the area, followed by a look at the Secwepemc First Nation and the history of settlement.

“I read the book and it is amazing,” Mayor Nancy Cooper told directors.

“I support this too,” said Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan. “Jim is a constituent of mine and I know this will be good for tourism and economics.”
