The new 'Stop of Interest' is coming closer to reality thanks to dedicated volunteer efforts.

Willing hands help with first ever ‘Stop of Interest’

Willing hands help with first ever ‘Stop of Interest’

Young Jonathan Ratcliff gives a big hand helping to clear boulders at the recent cleanup of the pullout being installed at the Ratcliff farm. Also on hand were Jordan Hall (not pictured), Kelly Prosser, and Clyde Tallio (right) who is also advising on Nuxalk aspects of the signs to be installed at this first-ever “Stop of Interest” on Highway 20 in the Lower Bella Coola Valley.

Farmer Rick Ratcliff, who is delighted with the effort to show off the heritage farm – the oldest agricultural site in the Valley, was there with his tractor, thinning the shrubbery, pulling fence posts, and tilling the pullout’s edge.  Work that began in July will soon involve the final topping and grading in preparation for the signs. This Bella Coola Valley Tourism project is the first of several “Stops of Interest” intended to provide tourists with roadside information about the Valley’s natural and cultural heritage
