The consultation period ended March 15 and developed into a report by a third party consultant – NPR Research.
The valuable input of all will be taken into consideration in the assessment of the establishment of the proposed national park reserve,” – “Input from the public consultations will be published in the “What We Heard” report on the Let’s Talk South Okanagan-Similkameen web site on May 13.”

“A reserve in the South Okanagan-Similkameen would protect one of the most endangered natural regions in Canada and enable this inspiring landscape to be shared with Canadians and visitors from around the world for generations to come.”
