2021 DOS Community Enhancement Grant for $3400

We’ve been successful again with our application for a District of Squamish Community Enhancement Grant. This year the process and timing was different because the Squamish Community Foundation has taken on responsibility for managing the program on behalf of the District.

What did we receive and what will we do? The award is $3400.  We’ll spend it for materials to replace the polycarbonate glazing on 18 interpretive panels at Eagle Run dike. The panels were installed in 1997 when the eagle-viewing shelter was built. Over the years, the polycarbonate has become cloudy and scratched and is cracked in some places. Replacing the glazing will help preserve the unique posters which have informed many thousands of students, residents, and visitors about the lives and importance of our bald eagles.

Our thanks to the District and the Squamish Community Foundation for their support.
