Description Of This Tour

Visit one of the Burrowing Owl breeding facilities run by the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC (BOCS BC). Learn about the reintroduction efforts that the society has taken over the last 20 years to help this engendered owl which has been locally extinct in BC since the 1980s. The Burrowing Owl breeding facility shares land with SORCO, the Raptor Rehab Centre. After your tour and talk about burrowing owls, you will be shown around the SORCO facilities. After the tours, travel to the Burrowing Owl Estate Winery (25 min drive from SORCO to the winery) where you will be given a behind the scenes tour and complimentary wine tasting. Note: If you would like to stay for lunch at the winery, best to book a table for around 1:30 pm through the winery website:
