Thanks to All For a Great First Meeting of the Society!
It was great to see 27 people turn out for our first meeting! Check out our blog for an overview of our first meeting at the Barn Owl Brew Pub on February 12. And keep posted for upcoming events. New members can join under our "Get Involved" page.
Everyone appreciated the short presentation by Bev Kalamakoff of the Kelowna Tree Protectors. Heritage Week will offer a few "tree" related events: 1) Tree Photo Scavenger Hunt on Monday, Feb 17th, 11am - 3 pm in the lobby of the Kelowna Community Theatre; 2) a talk by Ken Salvail on trees and construction, Wednesday, Feb 19, 6:30 - 8 pm, at Benvoulin Heritage Church, Kelowna.
The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.
