Okanagan WaterWise presents...
exSTREAMS: The Okanagan water story and you
We’re very pleased to invite you to this year’s popular and FREE annual public forum, celebrating UN World Water Day-Canada Water Week on March 22, 2016, 6-8:30 PM at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna.
This year we are partnering with Okanagan Institute for Biodiversity, Resilience, and Ecosystem Services (BRAES-UBC Okanagan) and are pleased to have well-known Kelowna broadcaster Phil Johnson – host of AM1150’s Early Edition – moderating our annual public forum.
This year’s event, “exSTREAMS: The Okanagan water story and you” looks at our valley’s droughts and floods from a historical First Nation’s perspective, and how these extreme weather events are changing, even occurring within the same year. We will look at how Okanagan communities – all part of ‘One valley. One water.’ – are working together to address droughts and floods, and how individuals can be part of that effort. Special this year, we will have a keynote address from Water Champion MARGARET CATLEY-CARLSON, providing an international perspective to what is a global issue.
Come visit several staffed DISPLAY TABLES, providing residents information (AND GOODIES!) to help build a strong resilient Okanagan community, in their yards and in their neighbourhood – from low-water landscapes to improved home irrigation and more. Those with tables include:
Doors open at 5:30pm, event starts at 6pm.
This event is FREE but SEATING IS LIMITED. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Light refreshments will be served.
