Description Of This Tour

How do we bring nature into the city? Can the reintroduction of natural ecosystems into urban areas be beneficial for both wildlife and people? Join local architect Chris Allen, and fisheries scientist Paul Askey, as they tour two building renovations adjacent to Penticton Creek, and explore how they relate to the creek-side walkway, and the recent naturalization of the stream. The tour will begin at a renovated art moderne home that uses the amenities of a walkable downtown to provide a comfortable retirement lifestyle. The group will then make its way downstream, viewing the restoration work that has been done to the creek bed, and improvements to Kokanee spawning habitat. The tour will finish at Landform Architecture’s recently renovated office, with a discussion of future phases of restoration.

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.
