Please sign up ASAP with Julia so that we may ensure sufficient supplies for making laundry detergent, all purpose cleaner, tooth oil, calendula cream, etc.

Bring enough glass containers of various sizes and small squirt bottles.

Also, why not bring old T shirts and we’ll make a few “Boomerang” shopping bags to reduce single plastic bag use! Get a group of friends and neighbours together for a day of making and sharing!

PM2.5

Clean Air — B.C. Wildfires and Your Health

Dr Michael Mehta, environmental social scientist from Thompson Rivers University, focused on community resistance, resiliency, social innovation and citizen science. Forty residents came out and heard his ‘top 10’ actions to reduce health risks from PM2.5 particularly from wood smoke, as well as details of the Purple Air initiative, a global network of accurate air measurement instruments inexpensive enough to install at home.

Middle Shuswap Water Stewards

Shuswap River -- Oddfellows Campground

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.
