Okanagan WaterWise Challenge

Okanagan Waterwise Challenge

Climate change is affecting the Okanagan in various ways – from flooding, to repeated droughts, to fires. But we have solutions! It is time to put those solutions into action for a secure water future! We all have a voice and the power to make a positive impact!

As part of Canada Water Week, Okanagan WaterWise invited school classes and individuals throughout the Okanagan, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, to be Climate Heroes and encourage others to get involved.

We received a number of inspiring entries! Check them out below!
