Griz Days Schedule

Girl Days. It’s kind of a big deal in these parts. And this is the 40th Griz Days! Fernie has endless events scheduled from March 3rd to 5th. It’s almost too much. You gotta just pick something here and there and be alright with missing the rest.

You can find a detailed schedule on Tourism Fernie’s website:

Forest School Yurt Fund Raising

From Beyond4Walls gofundme page:

“We need your help to purchase a Yurt to use as an indoor warming hut ~ a place where the children can escape the harsh elements in times of emergency or need. This Yurt will be a situated in the woods and has been chosen as the most suitable structure for the  children, instructors and volunteers.  A Yurt can give a rustic, cabin like feel and emanate a calm sense of peace. A yurt has a very low impact on the earth and can be easily taken down in a matter of hours.

Your donation, whether it big or small, will help more and more children access outdoor programs.  The funds raised wil greatly help out the whole organization (Outdoor Connections) as other programs can hopefully have access to the Yurt.   It is our hope that school groups, youth groups and community members can all benefit from a yurt in the woods.”
