One of the parts of this job that Ange absolutely loves is always being present and ready to speak to a number of issues that are impacting our community. When you lean into issues but that by being a part of the conversation is how we collectively continue to design the environment for which we live.

It’s pretty common in Fernie to see the same faces at multiple events, especially when it comes to volunteers. These people are dedicated and passionate, wanting not only to be part of the excitement but also in ensuring these events continue to take place and are the best they can be. If you know Lori Bradish, it comes to no surprise to you that she is one of these people.

The Arts Station is a well-known and iconic landmark in downtown Fernie. Originally as a functioning train station, it was the hub of life in Fernie. Today in its second life it has become a hub for arts and culture.

The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) is working hard on Fernie’s potential as a world class trail network. We currently have over 300 kilometres of trails plus the trail network at Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR). Our trails have a variety of terrain and are suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.

There are many approaches used to preserve the region’s history, from installing interpretive signs or offering new museum exhibits, to creating conservation plans or training archival staff. This year, Columbia Basin Trust is supporting 43 heritage projects with over $2.8 million to support efforts to honour the past by conserving it for the future.
