WLAP BMP Series. January 2004. For the Grasslands Conservation Council of BC.

From the Preface:
"From Osoyoos to Kamloops and Lytton to Vernon, the Thompson-Okanagan grasslands are rare and unique landscapes facing increased pressures from a variety of sources. The pressure from human development is particularly acute, and in regions such as the Central Okanagan, population growth rates are among the highest in Canada. With an appealing climate, spectacular views and world-class recreation opportunities, it is easy to see why the Thompson and Okanagan grasslands in B.C.’s Southern Interior valleys are so popular. In this spectacular setting, an increasing number of people are recreating on grasslands. However, with increased recreation comes increased pressure on the grasslands and associated habitats. In response to these pressures, this document was developed as a tool to promote collaboration and a stewardship ethic amongst recreationists in order to achieve the conservation of grasslands in the Thompson and Okanagan basins."
