NWTFA hosted a fly-out work party at Lower Pensive Lake on Saturday, July 16, 2022 to conduct a general site clean-up. Seven volunteers, being members of NWFTA and/or CASARA, travelled to the site in member floatplanes to participate in the clean-up. We spent approximately 5 hours collecting a total of 1200 kg of debris, hauling it all down the esker to the beach, and loading it onto a Twin Otter for removal to the Yellowknife solid waste facility. With a bit of extra time, we also used a few salvaged timbers and donated logs to reconstruct benches around an existing firepit.
NWTFA extends its thanks to Unsmoke Canada, The Great Outdoors Fund and Air Tindi for their support of this project. As a result of their assistance and the collective effort of our volunteers and the Air Tindi pilots, this site is once again a lovely wilderness destination with a pristine beach and scenic esker. Check out our photo gallery for more shots of this site before, during and after our clean-up and learn more in Cabin Radio's story about the project.
