New bench erected in memory of Ray Myles

On August 2, the Sparwood District Fish and Wildlife Association (SDFWA) proudly unveiled a new memorial bench in honour of long-time member, Ray Myles, at the Big Ranch.

They group recognized Myles as instrumental in the organization, and involved with many conservation contributions.

“Ray was instrumental in securing these lands for wildlife and in ongoing habitat work on them,” said Sparwood Fish and Wildlife president, Darren Reghenas.

“Ray’s tireless work for the SDFWA will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.”

Reghenas gave a big thank you to Kevin Podrasky for his tireless work on the project. He also thanked Manitoulin, Cherished Memories, Tri-Kon, and Blair Chatterson for their generous contributions. In addition, he gave a special thank you to The Nature Trust of B.C. for their continuing work on these valuable lands and acknowledged their great relationship with them.
