Taking part in the Nov. 9 official opening of the Cornwallis Headwaters Society’s (CHS) information kiosk at Somerset School, were, from left, CHS coordinator Allison Healey, CHS chairman Kevin Spicer, students Gavin Best and Jessie Schofield and principal Heather Morse.
The not-for-profit society seeks to educate local residents, including agricultural producers, on ways to decrease their impact on surface water quality with the goal of maintaining a healthy watershed and a healthy community.
The new kiosk, located on school property, features interpretive panels with information about the natural environment and encourages the public to become more involved in the community. Funding for the project was a joint effort of many community partners, including the CHS, County of Kings, Nova Scotia Power, Knights of Columbus and the Burlington Community Club. Wetland educational material was provided by Ducks Unlimited Canada. - Submitted
