What is referred to here as the Middle Shuswap Water Stewards is actually a combination of 2 groups of volunteers calling themselves the Cherryville Water Stewards and the Middle Shuswap & Lumby Water Stewards. The Middle Shuswap watershed stretches from Sugar Lake to Mabel Lake, and encompasses all the tributaries sampled by these groups.
Analysis of the samples gathered by these volunteers is funded by the Regional District of North Okanagan.
