“This is our Watershed” Workshop

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are pleased to announce that we will be hosting another Watershed Conversation April 9th with the theme “This is our Watershed.” We hope you can make it!

What: Get to know our watershed by sharing information about what the watershed is like – and how things are changing. Establish what matters, and get involved!
Who: Everyone who cares about water
When: Tuesday, April 9, 9:30 am – 2 pm ~ Lunch will be provided
Where: Invermere Lion’s Hall

The workshop will build on discussions started during the Water Conversation held December 10, 2012. During the December event, Anna Warwick Sears of the Okanagan Basin Water Board had three messages for our community:
1) Communities Need to Come Together to Talk about Water
2) Things are Changing — Plan Ahead
3) Something We Want to Achieve? We Can Do it!

The April event will bring the community together to discuss issues and opportunities we have in our own watershed.
