Enriching historical, ecological, and recreational values.
DON DOBSON Wins 2022 City of Kelowna Champion for the Environment Award!
Former project engineer Don Dobson (1947-2021) was nominated posthumously by MCRI colleagues for the City of Kelowna’s 2022 Champion of the Environment Award.
Don was a long-time member of the MCRI, and instrumental in delivering several Mission Creek habitat-restoration projects, and the restoration designs presented in the upcoming Mission Creek Habitat Conservation and Restoration Plan.
His legacy will be long and strong, as he will always be remembered for his wide-ranging expertise, work ethic, professional and respectful approach, and his kind and generous nature.
We miss you, Don!
