Wildsight, Elk Valley branch, have put up a new sign after their last one went missing in November.

The original sign, made from cedar and worth over $400 went missing overnight last year, but a generous donation from a woman, who read about the theft in The Free Press, meant it could finally be replaced.

Costs incurred, however, are more than this donation so if you would like to contribute, please drop by the office at 891 – 2nd Ave, Monday to Friday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. or mail to Wildsight, Box 537, Fernie, V0B 1M0 or online at www.wildsight.ca
