After a rise in thefts at one of Canada’s premier climbing destinations last year, the Skaha Bluffs Park Watch is reporting zero thefts from vehicles and is ready to celebrate.
Park Watch is hosting an appreciation day for those in the community who have supported the program.
A raffle is taking place Sept. 3 at the Bluffs around noon with contributions from local businesses including Skaha Rock Adventures, Hoodoo Adventures, True Outdoors, the Climbers Access Society of B.C. (CASBC), Starbucks and more.
The raffle is $2 per ticket or three for $5. Prizes include climbing ropes, draws and a guiding service. Park Watch directors and park monitors are set to attend and invitations have been sent out to MLA Dan Ashton, Penticton Mayor Andrew Jakubeit, the Penticton RCMP and Parks BC.
