The East River Community has been a long time supporter and several of our community members are members of the SLCG. The community hosts Station Muirhead since the community’s inception in 2008, which makes it the oldest and one of the largest of the SLCG stations. The current station located in the region of Kirkstone, adjacent to region Muirhead, was built in 2010 when the need for a larger and more modern facility arose, and it was further expanded May 2011 to accomodate the HQ’s offices. Today Station Muirhead is a large, multi-functional station sporting a 4-stores modern building for HQ and district offices, an operation center, a server room, a port with boat shed for large and small boats, a workshop, and an air base with hangar.
