Reasons for Concern

In the Okanagan Valley and Region 8 there are currently a lot of reasons for concern for our local fisheries. These include the loss of habitat and the degradation of our waterways from urbanization, and the pressure on our lakes and rivers from improper recreational use. Learn more about our reasons for concern for places like Mission Creek, Middle Vernon Creek, Wood Lake, Kettle River and more.
