It was a packed house in the Christina Lake Community Hall as people interested in reviewing the region’s watershed plan gathered to hear the latest developments.

The annual review of the Christina Lake Watershed Management Plan was held Nov. 15 and featured several presentations on different facets of management. Hosted by RDKB Area C, Christina Lake Director Grace McGregor, it included presentations from WildSafe BC, Osoyoos Indian Band, BC Timber Sales, Eurasian Water Milfoil Dive Crew, BC Fish and Wildlife, and the Boundary Invasive Species Society.

In addition, art featuring species-at-risk native to the watershed area was on display for people to view and vote on as part of a contest put on by the Stewardship society. A wide variety of pieces, racing from sculptures to sketches are on display and include a brief description of the animal, with some of them including why the animal was chosen, a fun fact, where the animal is found and other information.Votes are still being collected and a winner will be announced Nov. 30.

The plan was developed to preserve and protect the health and quality of the Christina Lake Watershed.
