Upcoming RDKB Watershed Webinar – Benthic Invertebrates in our rivers

The RDKB Watershed Webinar Series is getting ready for their next event: Tuesday, June 22, 10-11:30 am.  This time we are going to hear about the Benthic Invertebrates present in both BC and our Boundary water systems. Thank you to all of your for passing on the information to your groups, I know most have heard about these events from either local advertising or word of mouth.  So thank you, and hopefully you will be able to join in on this opportunity.
