Call for photos;
The Bulkley Valley Backpackers Society turns 30 this year and to celebrate we are holding a photo contest!!!
Please submit your favorite hiking photo from the 2021 season by Labour Day to be entered in a draw to win a prize. Prize will be announced at a later date.
You can enter by emailing us your photo at email@example.com. Please include your full name and phone number and "BVBS Turns 30' in your submission. All photos will be shared publicly throughout the summer on our website and Facebook page so please include the date and location the photo was taken to inspire others on their outdoor adventures.
We are hoping to be able to celebrate our 30th anniversary with everyone at an in-person event this fall, if the government regulations allow. Details to follow.
