A brief session of how to use the Report-A-Weed app will be held just before we open up the floor to an open question period. The Open Q&A session will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions of EKISC and partners. There will be door prizes drawn at 7:00 pm, at the end of our formal presentations.
From 7:00 pm onward, we will serve food and drinks and guests will have an opportunity to view our educational displays, pinpoint areas of concern on an interactive map, and participate in games to win prizes.

On behalf of EKISC, thank-you. We look forward to seeing you there.
