Description Of This Tour

Conservation ecologist, photographer and author, A. Michael Bezener, leads this rare opportunity to bird at dawn at the ECOmmunity Place Locatee Lands in Penticton. 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.

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.
