Desert Centre Funding

New funding will mean some new opportunities for local students.

The Osoyoos Desert Centre has received a $45,000 environmental grant from the provincial government and is planning to use part of the money to hire summer students.

Desert Centre Executive Director, Joanne Muirhead, says the funding will also be used to help restore the golf course and hire an education coordinator.

She says this grant makes up about a third of the Centre's annual funding.

The Desert Centre is one of 205 organizations sharing in a total of $6.3 million in safety and community environmental grants.
