Rossland News

Why travel to Rossland? Said no citizen familiar with the area ever.

As locals the natural beauty and culture of the community speaks for itself when deciding to commute to Rossland.

The Monashee Institute merely hopes to share these perks with people everywhere by promoting local talent and reaching out to travellers.

This brand new initiative combines education and tourism to attract people to Rossland.

The open house on Wednesday evening brought together keen individuals who supported the project, wanted to know more about the initiative or wanted to know how to get involved.

Monashee Institute is all about connecting visitors with the community’s knowledge and skill.

The initiative will offer workshops, courses, and recreational activities such as mountain biking; all the while pulling from the community’s natural assets.

This allows Rossland citizens to play an active role in the build up of this initiative by sharing their skills, passions, and talents with both locals and visitors alike.

The purpose is to create a more sustainable community through showcasing everything Rossland has to offer.

With local contribution, through running workshops and courses the Monashee Institute will have a chance to grow and engage both local and global communities.

What better town to kick things off than Rossland, BC.?
