Annual request for participation as Parks Commission member

  • Posted on: 19 October 2017

Every year we send out a call for volunteers for the Area F Parks Commission.  The Parks Commission is a group of local residents who volunteer their time (handful of times per year) to help make decisions regards parks, trails, and recreation.  Their role is primarily to help the RDOS proiritize spending and service levels.

Most Parks Commission members serve for a few years.  But we put the call out every year to help cover natural attrition.  Please see the call for interest below if you would like more information.

Make water work (and crush Naramata)

The Okanagan Basin Water Board has launched a pledge program to increase awareness of its Make Water Work conservation program. The focus on the program is on domestic outdoor "non-working" water: lawns and shrubs that (a) look nice but don't do anything and (b) lose water to evaporation.  Working water, in contrast, creates economic benefit (agriculture, golf).  And domestic indoor water use is generally returned to the basin (through the water treatment plant or eventually seepage to the aquifer from your septic field).
