KAMLOOPS — Kamloops & District Crime Stoppers has partnered with BC Parks to help protect the Lac du Bois Grasslands.

They've done so by erecting a new sign there that offers ways to help catch people dumping illegally or destroying the grasslands.

Assistant Coordinator Sue Brown says the sign has been in the works for about a year and was initiated by now-retired coordinator Mark Price.

"So, we got on board with them (BC Parks) and erected the sign so that people could see it and know that we are working in partnership to help protect our environment and the grasslands."

She urges anyone who witnesses any wrongdoing to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1 (800) 222-8477 or to submit their tips online at Kamloopscrimestoppers.ca.

Brown says you can also upload pictures or videos and submit them via phone to help catch people in the act.
