Description Of This Tour

Rob Stewart, a seasoned birder and naturalist who’s been birding and botanizing since childhood, leads this outdoor ramble in the Garnet Valley conservation area. This area is a unique and special natural space that has sustained the Syilx people for millennia, and in recent centuries settlers and their descendants. The theme of ecosystem management, birding and botanizing will be woven through the morning’s walk while visiting some recent ecological restoration projects including the dry ponderosa pine forest management project where restoration has opened the forest to improve ecosystem values and Ritchie Lake where the dramatic results of wetland restoration completed in 2014 are astounding.
