This special area encompasses a complex mosaic of riparian, wetland and grassland habitats found nowhere else in the Penticton area, and is home to many colourful bird species, including several rare and Endangered species. You will see and hear a wide range of migrant and resident birds and learn about the Syilx cultural and conservation significance of species known to inhabit the site including Yellow-breasted Chat, Calliope Hummingbird, Lazuli Bunting, Western Tanager and Yellow Warbler. Portable washrooms will be on site. Photo by A. Michael Bezener.
