The Trail Wildlife Association’s Terry Hanik invites residents to take a cruise through the Waneta Mall this week

Wildlife Awareness Week revs up

The fifth annual Trail Wildlife Association's Wildlive Awarness week is on this week at Waneta Plaza.

Take a walk on the wild side and visit the Waneta Mall this week for the fifth annual Trail Wildlife Association’s Wildlife Awareness week.

The show brings together outdoor clubs, suppliers, artists, and conservation groups from across the West Kootenay in an interesting, educational, and potentially profitable event.

TWA president Terry Hanik has organized another top-notch lineup featuring 16 venues, with participants including the West Kootenay Fly Fishing Club, Bear Aware, West Kootenay Big Game, W.K. ATV Club, W.K. Marksmen and Cowboys, Secret Creek Supplies, Valley Firearms, Playmor Power Products, Conservation officers, John Lind carvings and paintings, Bill Radalovich wildlife paintings, Kootenay South Metis nation of B.C. and more.

“It’s to make the public aware that there is more to Trail Wildlife than the TWA,” says Hanik. “There’s groups that are involved and we want everybody to come out and see what is involved with it. It’s had a good turnout, and it gets better and better every year.”

While the TWA has been in the mall throughout the week, most groups will join them today through to Saturday. It is a great week to see what the various outdoor clubs do, the benefits of membership, and also to check out top-end gear from participating suppliers.

The TWA is also selling Trail Wildlife and West Kootenay Big Game memberships and raffle tickets with a $1,000 first prize and proceeds going to enhance wildlife habitat.
