“Building a Culture that Sustains Land”
We had 78 participants in this year’s Series, and by all reports so far, it was very successful. The additional new site visits (2) plus the full day workshop were beneficial. We had 19 people registered for the full day workshop with Kim Klein. Several participants reported that it was the most useful workshop they had ever attended. Eight people went to the Skaha Bluffs tour (excluding the 3 guides) plus eleven people went to the First Nations, and Okanagan River Restoration project.
