Wetlands are beautiful areas in our land and waterscapes. At Gamiing we are so fortunate to be located right in the middle of the Victoria Marsh Pigeon Lake #15, a provincially significant wetland and considered an ANSI wetland (ANSI is and Area of Natural and Scientific Interest).
Regrettably we are losing wetlands at an alarming rate to development and recreational activities. But when you consider that wetlands take out much of the pollutants from road run-off, from farms and surrounding soils such as phosphate and other nutrients then you realize how important wetlands are for the health of the species who live there and ultimately for the health of all of us.
To get a better understanding of the functions and values of wetlands, Gamiing wants to build a boardwalk through a portion of the wetland so that we can observe it up close, photograph birds and amazing flowers or just enjoy quitely the beauty and learn more about these waterscapes.
Therefore we started our fundraising campaign: HELP US BUILD OUR BOARDWALK, PLANK BY PLANK.
You can purchase one or more planks. The planks are $12.50 each and you can purchase them in honour of a loved one. Your chosen name(s) will be engraved on a small plaque which will go on a board at the foot of the boardwalk.
