Description Of This Tour

Wildflower photographer and former biology teacher Harold Baumbrough along with local biologist Lisa Scott lead a hike into a grassland and dry coniferous forest that burned in 2018 as part of the Eneas Wildfire in Summerland. Learn about the role of fire and witness the incredible renewal and recovery of the plant community. Prepare to be captivated by breathtaking views of the valley as you look across the lake at Okanagan Mountain Park which burned in 2003. Watch for a variety of raptors, songbirds and woodpeckers, as you learn about the importance of fire and the invasive plants that pose a threat to this beautiful landscape.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
