Description Of This Tour

Please join long time members of the Friends of the Oxbows, Allan Garland and Rob Anderson for an exploration of this stretch of the Okanagan River to imagine it as it once was.

You will drive and walk with several stops along the way. You will learn about the habitat and the history of this unique wetland in the city. Remediation work has been done over the past several years and you will have a chance to appreciate how that work has brought the Oxbows back to life. 

Urban wildlife abounds here, and quiet observant participants can catch a glimpse of our local wilderness at its best. 

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.
