What does water mean to you? Life-sustaining, thirst quenching, essential; water is precious for all living beings.
And water certainly is a hot topic in the Okanagan. With concerns about water supply on the minds of many in the wake of the 2015 drought, protecting our water in the Okanagan, the most water-scarce basin in the country, is essential to our wellbeing. And indeed, a slew of restoration initiatives of water bodies – from Mission Creek to Okanagan River and more – are unfolding throughout our watershed to help restore the balance between people and nature.
This fall the community is invited to embark on an enlightening trek through the Okanagan Basin. The Social Life of Water, is a collective endeavour that will be unveiled at the Okanagan Heritage Museum in October.
