Description Of This Tour
Recent flooding and wildfire events have strained the resources of Okanagan residents to adapt to climate change. Homeowners are facing environmental changes and struggling to understand the best ways to respond. The looming question is “How ready are private property owners to cope with impacts of climate change?”
The South Okanagan Real Estate Board in partnership with the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen, South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program and Okanagan Nation Alliance have produced a new outreach document Building Climate Resilience in the Okanagan: A Homeowners’ Resource Guide to address pressing issues. Exploring topics such as Climate, Flood, Drought, Fire, Energy Efficiency, Invasive Species and Food Security, this guide provides practical hands on information and advice about actions each of us can take to make the places we live more robust in the face of climate change.
This Meadowlark Festival presentation will include several experts highlighting key issues in the guide including Fire, Flood and Insurance which will be followed by question period.
Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the Resource Guide. Admission is free.
