Kay Mutter, Jill Cool, Shawni MacPherson and Cheryl Stecko showed off their wreaths during the Green Christmas Decorative Workshop held recently at the Mission Creek Regional Park’s Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan.
According to Alison Campbell Urness, park interpreter with the Regional District of the Central Okanagan, early registration was necessary due to the popularity of the event.
Participants used natural materials such as prunings of Douglas fir, cedar boughs, Oregon grape leaves, snowberries and other items gathered from regional parks during fall pruning.
The event, which has been held for more than five years, was free. “Our mandate is to enable people to enjoy and learn about our parks. If we can make it a pleasant experience, then that’s what it’s about,” said Campbell Urness.
