NWTFA members spent a sunny day at Fishing Lake on July 22, 2019 for our fly-out picnic and work party. Members cleaned up a considerable amount of garbage littering the beach and shack areas and removed it from the site in their floatplanes. Junk included beer cans, bits of food wrapping, a broken toilet seat, shredded tarps, and beat up metal pipe. Many hands made for quick work and the site is now safer and tidier for all to enjoy. Thanks to those members who participated! We plan to choose another site for similar improvement next summer.
Fishing Lake is a popular fishing and camping destination for many NWTFA/COPA 108 members and is frequently visited by Yellowknife residents and tourists wishing to enjoy the pristine wilderness of the Northwest Territories. Unfortunately, a significant amount of junk and debris has accumulated on the northern beach over recent years.
NWTFA/COPA 108 is planning a fly-out to Fishing Lake on July 20, 2019 for the purpose of a general site clean-up. We'll combine it with a cookout and some relaxation. Plan to attend and lend a helping hand. Please RSVP by clicking here so that we can assess food requirements.
