If you’re looking for a feel-good activity, consider participating in the City of Kelowna’s Adopt-a-Stream program.

The Adopt-a-Stream program runs in the spring and fall, giving organizations, families, individuals, clubs and community groups the opportunity to assist the city in keeping Kelowna’s streams healthy.

“Groups help our streams by picking up litter and debris, removing noxious weeds and painting yellow fish on storm drains to raise awareness about the sensitivity of our watershed,” said program coordinator Summer Bracey. “The program requires that an organization adopt a portion of a stream to care for—for at least two years.”

For more information about the program, visit kelowna.ca/environment.

To adopt a stream, contact Summer Bracey at sbracey@kelowna.ca or 250-469-8883.
