The Okanagan watershed straddles the international border, requiring joint water management to meet the various needs for a clean, sustainable supply. This is done by the International Osoyoos Lake Board of Control (IOLBC). Anna is the Executive Director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board and sits on the IOLBC. She will outline issues and the new documentary "A River Film" which showcases the Okanagan Watershed, its people, the various competing needs for water, and how this is managed.

Members of our club have volunteered to provide emergency support during past flooding and fires. Paul will tell us a little about himself and update us on emergency planning for the South Okanagan/Similkameen.
