Vernon then & now
April 26, 2021
As part of the GVMA Earth Day, Every Day focus on ecological change in the Okanagan, we’ve developed a short slideshow of photographs comparing archival photos around the Greater Vernon area, with photos from 2021.
ECO: a Virtual program
The slideshow can also be used in conjunction with the ECO: Ecological Change in the Okanagan.
Designed for intermediate students in School District 22, the program will be of interest with anyone curious about how North Okanagan landscapes, wildlife populations, and ecology have changed over time
