The South Okanagan Conservation Fund was established to support local environmental projects that would make a difference to the sustainability of the land, water and wildlife of the region. The RDOS has granted $482,365 to eight projects making that difference in 2021. From salmon to bats, lakeshores to shrubsteppe –  local organizations are working hard to protect and sustain our unique biological treasures of the South Okanagan.
