New Interpretive Building Announcement
2015 Final Report PhotoFriday, July 6
3:00 pm at the Desert Centre
On Friday, July 6th the Osoyoos Desert Society will be hosting an event to update the community on plans for a new interpretive building at the Osoyoos Desert Centre and to recognize the funders whose support helped get the building project underway. We encourage as many people as possible to attend the event and to be part of a special group photo that will be taken at the Centre. The photo will be featured on a GoFundMe page launched to help raise the remaining funding needed for the building.

We hope you can join us to share in the excitement and be part of our Desert Centre photo!
