The City of Kelowna is promoting an Adopt-a-Stream program to give organizations, families, individuals, clubs and community groups the opportunity to assist the City in keeping Kelowna’s streams healthy.
Groups can pledge to help our streams by:
- Picking up litter and debris
- Painting yellow fish on storm drains
- Removing noxious weeds
The Adopt-a-Stream Program requires that an organization adopt a portion of a stream for at least two years. The minimum requirements include picking up litter along the stream a minimum of twice a year. Additionally, within the two year adoption period the group will paint yellow fish (see Yellow Fish Road ) on the storm drains in the area adjacent to their portion of the adopted stream.
