The Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary revealed a new welcome kiosk Monday (March 26).

The cedar structure, located adjacent to the Nature House, features a green roof made of native plants from southern Vancouver Island. It also features a bulletin board and information about urban wetlands, the endangered Garry oak ecosystem and trail maps.

The kiosk replaces an old welcome sign that’s existed since 1988, said Terry Morrison, executive director of the nature sanctuary.

The new kiosk was sponsored by The Nature Trust of British Columbia and B.C. Green Roofs consulting company.

The Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary is located at 3873 Swan Lake Rd.
