As Manager of the South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program, Bryn White has been a valued and dedicated leader in conservation in the South Okanagan Similkameen. An extraordinary visionary, Bryn has been instrumental in the success of a myriad of initiatives, including the Penticton and Ellis Creek restoration projects, Keeping Nature in our Future biodiversity strategy and the South Okanagan Conservation Fund.
Ari Neufeld is a self-made, one man band, playing guitar, piano, banjo while singing and keeping time through an amplified stompbox, with ethnic beads, nuts and bells strapped to his body. His performance covers a variety of genres from folk to pop, to new country, to rhythmic soul, and to rock – what he likes to coin as “Full Contact Folk”. It’s a vibrant blend of beat, melody and humor. Prepare to be inspired!
