Open Houses on Okanagan Wildlife Management Areas

Okanagan residents are encouraged to come and share their views on two Wildlife Management Area proposals at two open houses on Tuesday, Nov. 6 (in Oliver) and Wednesday, Nov.7 (in Penticton).

The process is being led by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations. The proposals include additions to an existing WMA in the South Okanagan and the establishment of a new WMA near Penticton help complement the conservation, recreation and cultural heritage values that currently exist in neighbouring parks/protected areas.

Please see the attached news release and maps for more information.
