Eco-Freako and Sunshine Coast Wildlife have entered into a community partnership. We believe we need to start supporting each other and what better way than a mutually beneficial project. And these guys are an awesome organization working to help local species at risk and their habitats.
The Wildlife Project is responsible for bringing millions of dollars worth of funding to the Sunshine Coast, which is used on projects like: Building nesting beaches for the Western Painted Turtles; Research; Educational workshops at the Iris Griffiths Centre and the Sechelt Botanical Gardens; and The Land Stewardship Program which offers houses for bees, bats and owls to land owners.
We stock Sunshine Coast Wildlife bee, bat, and owl houses for sale at our Eco-Freako L'il Shop In The Woods, 1734 Pell Road, in Roberts Creek, BC. In the near future, visitors to the L'il Shop will be able to stroll on a visitors walk that gives some great visual examples of what the Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project can do saving our endangered wildlife here on the Coast.
In 2015, Eco-Freako created The Roberts Creek Directory Of Everything. Thanks to contributions from Vital Signs And Graphics, Mainstay Computing, SLEDRC (Sustainable Local Economic Development In Roberts Creek - that's Lesley), The Sunshine Coast Credit Union, The Gibsons Chamber Of Commerce, TerraTea, Mortal Coil Media, and the Roberts Creek Community Association, we produced a print and online directory of 166 community organizations, artists and artisans, farmers, and businesses in our awesome community on the Sunshine Coast.
The print version was distributed to every household in the Creek thru Canada Post and was available across the Coast at tourist centres and various local businesses. The directory is being given to all new residents to the southern Sunshine Coast by Welcome Wagon.
The 2018-2019 edition will be available this May.
Slow Sundays In The Creek is a great opportunity to mingle with local merchants and enjoy locally produced artisan delights and farm fresh produce as well as enjoy some fantastic music by local musicians. It runs from late June to early September each summer.
It runs from noon to 4pm at the park in "downtown" Roberts Creek, behind the Library.
