New Date for Community Workshop

Watershed Ecosystems Project and District of Peachland Community Engagement Workshop Rescheduled to November 17th, 2023

Due to the wildfire situation in the Central Okanagan, the Watershed Ecosystems Project Community Engagement Workshop scheduled for August 21 was postponed.

We are pleased to announce that this workshop, co-hosted by the District of Peachland, has now been rescheduled to Friday, November 17th at the Peachland Community Center.

We encourage those who are able to attend on this new date to register through the Eventbrite registration page here. Registration is limited and filled quickly for the initial event. The workshop is free and open to any community members who wish to engage with our Watershed Ecosystems Project researchers to learn more about our research activities and will be an opportunity for the public to provide input and ask questions.
