Friends of Mission Creek 2016 Annual General Meeting
In the summer of 2014, a group of 12 paddlers loaded up three 26 foot voyageur canoes and paddled more than 1500 km from Great Slave Lake at Fort Providence to Inuvik in the Mackenzie River delta. Averaging roughly 75km per day, the group faced everything from wild rain storms to 40c blistering heat and forest fires burning right down to the water's edge. The Mackenzie River (called Dehcho by the Dene) is an iconic symbol in Canada's history and geography. While the river drops just over 500 feet over its length, the waterway takes the traveler through some of the most striking landscapes in Canada.
We hope you can join us.
Mission Creek Regional Park and Greenway is one of Kelowna's most visited parks. It includes an educational centre, salmon spawning channel, picnic areas, and a new playground. Mission Creek Greenway, when complete, will be 26 kilometres in length from the shore of Okanagan Lake to Mission Creek Falls. The Greenway offers a lengthy trail system that traverses through Kelowna's beautiful and diverse landscapes.
