siwɬkʷ Water Responsibility Planning

The purpose of this engagement is to get direction and input from Syilx community members into a kɬúsx̌nítkʷ (Okanagan Lake) Water Responsibility Plan. We want to hear from Syilx community members on their kɬúsx̌nítkʷ knowledge; areas of priority to protect and restore; what are the watershed issues; and Syilx-led solutions.
