March 25, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
With Canada Water Week/UN World Water Day just around the corner, we want to make sure you are aware of what we have planned and invite you to join us!
The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) and its Okanagan WaterWise outreach and education program are partnering with UBC Okanagan Institute for Biodiversity, Resilience and Ecosystem Services (BRAES) to present a special ONLINE screening of “Lost Rivers”.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with a few of the people involved in “daylighting,” and “re-wilding” projects in the Okanagan, helping draw attention to these hidden and important waterways and bringing them into the light.
This is a FREE event, but numbers are limited. Pre-registration through Eventbrite is required. Registrants will be sent a confirmation email, as well as a reminder email the day before the event with further details on how to join us!
