Tickets are now closed for this event.

Description Of This Tour

In the Okanagan, the fate of endangered Williamson’s Sapsuckers is tied to that of the most magnificent specimen of the world’s larches, the Western Larch. Join biologist and naturalist Les Gyug on this tour of several short and easy walks in a Williamson’s Sapsucker Wildlife Habitat Area amidst a towering stand of 400 year-old Western Larches. Explore the ecology of larches, sapsuckers, other woodpeckers, ants and the role fire plays in maintaining the ecology of these mid-elevation stands. Be prepared for cooler weather than in the valley, and with appropriate footwear for short walks through the forest, especially if the weather has been wet.
