Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program (OCCP)

FOSS works with a number of committees within the OCCP, including the Stewardship and Land Securement Committees.

One project is of particular interest:  the Central Okanagan Ecological Corridor initiative touches on what FOSS refers to as the “South Slopes Greenbelt” that boasts the vast trail system we are working to complete, preserve and protect.

Working with these various decision-making agencies, FOSS serves as an umbrella organization, fully representing, supporting, and collaborating with other stakeholders – the many recreational user groups and engaged private businesses – with whom we share the South Slopes.


In pursuit of our goal of achieving ultimate connectivity on the South Slopes, FOSS has always worked closely with the different levels of government and other strategic agencies and stakeholders.
