Kelowna, B.C. – Today, the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) and its WaterWise program welcomed Formula 1 Tunnel Boat Racing Team driver Mike McLellan, of Kelowna, in helping with its “Don’t Move A Mussel” initiative, working to protect Okanagan waters – and beyond – from invasive mussels. The announcement was made at a specially called news conference at the Water Street Boat Launch in Kelowna.
“This is great news,” said OBWB Chair Doug Findlater. “Mike is a high-profile driver on the Formula 1 boat racing circuit in Canada and the U.S., always drawing a crowd, and has a great understanding of the mussel issue and the need to protect our waters.”
