    The Central Okanagan’s changed a lot since 1994, when the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan first opened its doors.

    In the two decades since, the EECO (ee-COH) as it is commonly known has seen thousands of people pass through the doors, learning about our natural environment from the dozens of exhibits that it has hosted.   Many more have taken part in various Regional Park activities and programs inside the log structure such as Nature Camps, Science Saturday’s and Story Time.

    This Sunday afternoon, October 19th, you’re invited to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan, at an Open House.  It runs from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm in the EECO, located at Springfield and Durnin Roads in Mission Creek Regional Park.

    There’ll be beverages to sip on as well as celebration snacks and anniversary cupcakes.  You can see some photos of the construction of the EECO and historical photos of the Mission Creek Park area.  View some photos

    And upstairs there’ll be a ‘hive’ of activity with the new ‘Un-Bee-lievable Bees’ exhibit.
