B.C. wetlands grow with land purchase by conservation groups
Terri Theodore - Mar 28, 2017 -- Oliver, BC

OLIVER, B.C. — A parcel of land in a birder’s paradise in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley has been secured by the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

The 36.4 hectare property is located in an expanse of wetland near the Okanagan River and is an important acquisition because so much of the valley bottom has been lost to development and agriculture, said Barb Pryce, the southern Interior program director with the conservancy.

The same article has been picked up by a lot of the news web sites.
The one thing the article does not touch on is where this piece of the puzzle is located. It is like saying something is happening in Vancouver when it really is happening in Pitt Meadows.
