Thank you to the wonderful folks at FOCI, CKTZ and CCHA for making this possible.

Fire-Scaping & Icecream Sundaes at the Skatepark! Youth (13yrs – 18yrs)
Saturday June 4th 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Location: Cortes Skatepark

In this free workshop, Autumn will be teaching youth about Fire-scaping, talking about its importance in our community, and participating in hands-on Fire-scaping around the Skatepark! This workshop will educate youth on how to decrease likelihood of fires in our neighbourhoods and local ecosystems, and will leave them with the skills and confidence to assist community members in Fire-scaping their own homes! Did we mention ice cream sundaes and skateboarding?! We will celebrate our new-found skills by enjoying ice cream sundaes, and we can talk about how youth can make an income supporting fellow community members in meeting goals delivered after the SRD Threat Assessment Day, for any youth interested in making some summer income! Come join us at the Skatepark on Saturday June 4th at 11am, bring your wheels and your friends!

FolkU Field Trip
Fire-scaping our Community!
Friday June 3rd 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Location: CCEDA Tent at the Mansons Village Commons

In this free workshop geared towards adults, Autumn will be sharing knowledge around Fire-scaping and talking about its importance in our community. This workshop will educate folks on how to decrease likelihood of fire-spread in our neighbourhoods and local ecosystems, thus empowering us to take action in Fire-scaping at our home and in our neighbourhoods! We will spend the last hour Fire-scaping and Fire-scape designing Mansons Hall, the Radio Station, FOCI Office and CCEDA Lands together!
The information in this workshop will help you achieve a lower Threat Assessment Risk! Once we've learned about Fire-scaping and put it to practice at the Hall, take your knowledge back home to your neighbourhoods and work together to get woody debris out to the roadside for the June 19th woody-debris pick up! Come join us to learn how to take action in safe-guarding your home, neighbourhood and local ecosystems!
