Rose Valley Regional Park
In 1993, the society contributed toward the purchase of a lot on Rose Valley Pond in West Kelowna, as valuable habitat for yellow-headed and red-winged blackbirds.
Because of the grassroots community effort to conserve the habitat, a further 250 hectares of Crown land was leased by the regional district as park, taking it to the shoreline of Rose Valley Reservoir.
SILT is a registered non-profit society and tax receipts can be issued for donations of cash or property or bequests from estates, so consider making a tax-deductible donation of money or land or including the society in your will, in order to further our common objectives of conserving habitat for the Okanagan’s wildlife. Learn more about how you can make a difference. SILT has no paid staff, so all donations go directly to fulfilling the society’s mandate of purchasing and restoring habitat for fish and wildlife. Instead it is operated by a volunteer board of directors.
