Osoyoos Lake Water Science Forum 2022



Project Description

The Osoyoos Lake Water Science Forum provides an opportunity for residents of the Okanogan/Okanagan watershed to learn about water management, climate change and the ecology of Osoyoos Lake and the broader Okanagan/Okanogan transboundary watershed. It provides a forum for resource managers, policy makers, and all stakeholders to share issues of concern and identify common goals and challenges, and it promotes transboundary stewardship of this valuable lake and the ecosystem it supports. Previous forums were held in 2007, 2011, and 2015, and were a great success.

The 2022 Osoyoos Lake Water Science Forum was hosted by the Osoyoos Indian Band and the Town of Osoyoos, October 27 - 29, 2022, in Osoyoos, B.C. The forum was presented by the Okanagan Basin Water Board, the International Joint Commission, the Okanagan Nation Alliance, along with many other partners with an interest in the Okanagan/ Okanogan watershed.
