Description Of This Tour

Blue Lake is an unusual, mildly saline lake in the South Okanagan Grasslands, a wilderness area renowned for its species diversity. Some 140 bird species have been identified in the vicinity of Blue Lake, and the lake itself hosts rare amphibians. We will tour the site of a proposed riparian restoration project, learn about Indigenous uses of the land, and visit a grove of magnificent veteran ponderosa pine and interior Douglas fir trees. There will be plenty of time for individual explorations, group conversations and quiet moments in which to absorb the beauty of the Kilpoola country. The road is unpaved, rough, and dusty.  No toilets on site. Bring a bag lunch, sandals not appropriate

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.
