The Okanagan Nation Alliance kł cp̓əlk̓ stim̓ (cause to come back) program is working to return the river and the salmon back to their historical waters, but there is still a lot of work to do! We will walk along the channelized upper reach of sq̓awsitkw and across Okanagan Lake Dam as we discuss the latest in projects, salmon returning to kłusxnitkw (Okanagan Lake).
