ACAP Cape Breton and the CBRM Water Utility are inviting Glace Bay residents to participate in a Photo Contest during a beautiful guided walk around the local watershed MacAskill’s Brook Dam.
The walk will be guided by Britt Roscoe, CBRM Watershed Coordinator on Saturday, July 14th, during Bay Days, 10am at 2020 Birch Grove Road, Tower Road. During the walk there will be lots of opportunities to take pictures. There will also be a children’s scavenger hunt and snacks provided.
At the end of the Walk, participants are encouraged to send their favourite photo to ACAP for the chance to win a front page spot on the CBRM Water Utility Glace Bay watershed newsletter along with a framed photo of your masterpiece.
This event is part of a series of Watershed Walks promoting the exploration and stewardship of our public water sources. Within the CBRM, there are seven watersheds which provide residents with their tap water. Source water protection is an important issue for both our environment and our public health.
The walk will proceed rain or shine, so dress accordingly and bring your camera.
