Golf Anyone?
Set against the spectacular backdrop of Mt. Rainey, visitors to Stewart's Mt. Rainey Golf Facility will enjoy a unique, fun and FREE golf experience on our Par 3, Driving Range and Putting Course (the only golf facility within 300km). The facility is open daily June through August. Clubs and balls supplied if you didn't bring yours. For more information please visit this website: www.90degreerule.com

Just a thought: If you would like to support the Mt. Rainey Golf Facility, donations can be dropped off at the District of Stewart Municipal Office located at 705 Brightwell Street.

How do you like Bears?
A bear viewing platform is available in Hyder, Alaska. Pass from Stewart to Hyder and travel out to see the bears. This is always a wonderful sight as bears ignore the tourists and concentrate on catching and enjoying the salmon as they travel upstream.

Heli-tours can be arranged!
There are helicopter companies that are based in Stewart that offer tours and can be contacted directly to make arrangements.

Just take a look at these breathtaking photographs taken by Steve Marley (displayed with his permission) during his helicopter tour:

Regional District Solid Waste Management Plan

The District of Stewart is a member of the Regional District Solid Waste Management Plan. This Plan is a new approach that will help make waste management safer and more cost efficient by sharing resources. All communities will contribute to the plan based on their population. This means that Stewart’s taxpayers will contribute approximately 7% of the cost.

You will be receiving an informational flyer in your mailbox that provides more information. We encourage you to read the flyer and be informed about the changes that will be taking place with the closure of our landfill and the construction of a transfer station.
