Toadfest celebrates a milestone this year – it turns 10! Toadfest 2019 is at Summit Lake Provincial Park, near Nakusp, on Wednesday Aug. 21, 2019 from 4: to 7 p.m., and Thursday, August 22, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

Toadfest is a free, fun, family event, coordinated by the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) and the Province of B.C. It’s about connecting with, and raising awareness about, local flora and fauna including the Western Toad.

Toadfest is a great opportunity to learn about the toads’ natural history, life cycle and habitat needs and get up close and personal with other local species including amphibians, snakes, lizards and aquatic insects.

There will be lots of kids’ activities, a 10th anniversary cake, and exhibitors including the Slocan River Streamkeepers, Wildsafe BC, Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative, FireSmart Canada, Slocan Lake Stewardship Society, Arrow Lakes Environmental Stewardship Society, Kootenay Community Bat Project, Grizzly Bear Coexistence Solutions, and Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society.

The FWCP is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and Public Stakeholders, to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams.
