Wood Stove Exchange Program
Are you looking for the right time to replace that smoke-belching woodstove you’re using? If so, the time is now. Cariboo residents are being offered a cash incentive to upgrade their old woodstoves as part of the Cariboo Woodstove Exchange Program. There are only 25 rebates in total. Therefore, it is on a first come first serve basis that residents who replace older inefficient models with more efficient and clean-burning appliances can receive a cash rebate. Did you know that new certified wood stoves burn one-third less wood and can reduce smoke and particulate matter entering the atmosphere by as much as 90 per cent! The first 25 stoves to be turned in are eligible for a $250 provincial rebate, and if residents live within the Quesnel Airshed boundaries they will receive an additional $300, meaning there’s as much as $550 available. The Woodstove Exchange Program is not only helping British Columbians replace inefficient appliances but also helping to raise public awareness about the importance of smoke-free burning. For more information about the Wood Stove Exchange Program, call the Exchange Hotline in Quesnel at 250-992-5833 or toll free at 1-877-992-5833

Our New Baby
The Nature Education and Resource Centre is proud to announce we have a new baby in our salt water tank! Visit the Centre and enter the contest “Name the New Anemone” that will run until the end of January. The winning name will be announced on our website and the person that comes up with the winning name will win a prize.
The new baby sea anemone is about the size of a quarter (too small to photograph yet). We first discovered her in early November. It is very rare to have sea anemone’s breed in captivity. Stay tuned for more details as the new baby develops.
