Description Of This Tour
Join historian Randy Manuel for a most interesting look back in time at the Penticton Oxbows. Hear the stories of steam boats, sand bars and switchbacks, floods and near-death experiences of those who lived along the banks of this meandering river. See and hear the work that Friends of the Oxbows along with the Penticton Indian Band, Okanagan Nation Alliance and the City of Penticton have done to improve and clean up portions of this historic waterway. If you are quiet and careful you may meet up with turtles, water fowl, deer, beavers and muskrats… but if not, you will need to “sneak back” later this summer to your favourite spot to see these elusive critters.
