A wildfire risk field study is also being completed. 

The open house in Peachland is Tuesday night, at the community centre from 5pm to 8pm. 

West Kelowna's will be tomorrow at the Westbank Lions Community Centre from 5pm to 8pm while Kelowna's will be at the Coast Capri Hotal on Thursday, same time.
