Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world! To celebrate and support this global movement Kelowna Museums is encouraging the community to “go-green” by opting to bike or take public transit on this day. In fact, what better way to participate in Earth Day than to hop on the bus and head to the Okanagan Heritage Museum conveniently located next to the Queensway bus exchange downtown?

Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies (source: GreenPeace website). This is particularly alarming here in the Okanagan where bee pollination is extremely important for our agricultural industries.
