On Monday June 25, Wells Gray Country Seniors Society organized a bus trip to Barriere.

After a delicious lunch prepared by the Barriere Senior’s Society the group of 20 toured the state of the art solar aquatic water reclamation treatment greenhouse.

WGCSS thanks the Wells Gray Community Forest Corp. for granting bus money for the monthly bus trip.

On July 23, WGCSS will become tourists in our own backyard as we take a bus trip to Helmken Falls, Dawson Falls and Spahats Falls.

Bring your own lunch. There is no cost for this outing.
