Lake Enid Restoration

The Lake Enid Restoration Project was initiated in 2012 by Wildsight Invermere in response to extensive damage caused by motorized use around this popular recreation area. The four-year project engaged the help of more than 100 volunteers and resulted in the construction of  a nature-viewing  boardwalk, five interpretive signs and restored and replanted  riparian areas. Today, the trail around the lake continues to be appreciated by locals and out of town visitors. 

Support from the following agencies made this project possible: Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund, Columbia Basin Trust, the Regional District of the East Kootenays,  Grassland Rangeland Enhancement Program and Recreation Sites and Trails BC. And thanks to all the good-hearted Wildsight volunteers!
