Description Of This Tour

Join the fun of this friendly competition to see which team can see and hear the most species of birds in one day (midnight Saturday to midnight Sunday) in the Okanagan Valley. Once again, this year is fossil-fuel-free, so all teams and individuals must do their birding while walking, biking or sitting! For those not wanting to deal with total sleep deprivation, there is a Novice event which runs noon to 5 pm. Bicycle birding teams usually see about 130 species, and the record to date is 146! Funds raised through pledges will go towards bird conservation and research projects, including the Vaseux Lake Bird Observatory.

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.
