Description Of This Tour
Join us for our annual Meadowlark Gala Fundraising Dinner at the beautiful Penticton Golf and Country Club.
This year, we are thrilled to present long-time nature advocate and educator Margaret Holm with the first “Outstanding in Nature” award. Margaret has made a tremendous contribution to the conservation, protection and awareness of the rare and special habitats and species of the Okanagan Similkameen and throughout the years OSCA and many other organizations have benefited greatly by her wisdom, dedication and energy.
We are also very pleased to present guest speaker Henry Sielmann. Henry is President of The Trail of the Okanagans Society, an organization working with local gov’t and First Nations to create a continuous network of trails and cycling lanes along a 250 km corridor of the Okanagan from Osoyoos to as far north as Sicamous. The trail will travel through many communities, natural habitats and historic sites in the Okanagan Valley. Henry will share the progress of his group’s work, the exciting successes and opportunities they’ve experienced along the way as well as some of the challenges.
Join us and help support one of the most unique Festivals of its kind! The Gala also includes a delicious meal and an auction of some really fantastic items including weekend getaways, golf packages, rare nature books, food and wine goodies, outdoor gear, bird feeders, paintings, photography and of course Skyler Punnett’s incredible 2018 Meadowlark featured artwork! Dress casual or cocktail… your choice.
