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.

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.
