Celebrating collective impact – 10 years of water funding in the Okanagan

Kelowna, B.C. – Big plans are underway as the Okanagan Basin Water Board and partners prepare to celebrate 10 years of funding through the board’s Water Conservation and Quality Improvement Grant Program. The Water Board, in partnership with the Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program (OCCP) and the South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program (SOSCP), are hosting a one day event “Celebrating Collective Impact” on Nov. 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Westbank Lions Community Centre, 2466 Main St., West Kelowna.

Since the grant program began in 2006, more than $3.2 million has been awarded to 197 projects in the Okanagan, from drought planning to water metering, from wetland restoration to foreshore mapping, xeriscape demonstration gardens and much more. The event will showcase these projects and others, which have helped protect and conserve the waters of the Okanagan, and recognize the achievements of collaborative projects by OCCP and SOSCP partners.
