The 2nd field season of the SOKS Model Working Wetlands (MWW) Education Program ran through Winter 2000 to the Fall 2001. The program involved over 3000 children, parent volunteers, teachers and community leaders. Together with the community and program participants:
Identifed and counted aquatic microinvertebrates in the field
Undertaken water quality monitoring
Planted red osierdogwood and willow whips along shoreline
Learned how to predicting wetland health and inhansted several wetlands in the Central Okanagan
During the summer and fall we continued to use our programs for families in the community under the program name “Wetland Warriors”.
