Okanagan Wetlands Regeneration Alliance
is a group of progressive citizens, groups, companies, institutions, organizations and communities who want to put nature back into the centre of Okanagan life.
The Alliance was formed to apply the principals of
ecology to the wetlands of the
Okanagan Basin, which are the source and heart of the
future of human habitation and economy of this
area, and which are in continuous need of study, understanding and regeneration.
