The Regional District of the North Okanagan, along with the Allan Brooks Nature Centre are inviting the public out to Poulson Park in Vernon this weekend to celebrate BC Rivers Day.
The community celebration will take part on Sept. 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with guest M.C. Mayor Sawatzky. There will be activities and games for kids, cake and information about waterways. Music will be performed at the bandshell by the group 3hree of a Kind.
Coinciding with Rivers Day this year is the 20th annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, which encourages individuals, community groups and companies to clean up litter from the shorelines of local waterways.
“Numerous organizations have registered with our Adopt-a-stream program," said Emma Posluns, RDNO Water Sustainability Coordinator.
“New groups of individuals are welcome to join the stewardship effort with various stream reaches and shorelines in the Vernon area still unspoken for.”
