Description Of This Tour
The unmistakable scent of sagebrush. The sweet songs of sparrows. A stunning vista that stretches as far as the eye can see. Join Barbara Pryce and Sheena Briggs from Nature Conservancy of Canada along with birders Andrew and Gail Harcombe at the Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area. Located south-west of Osoyoos, these lands sit in the heart of a crucial migration corridor for species moving between the desert areas of the western United States and the dry grasslands of interior BC. Join us to experience a landscape of rolling hills of sagebrush hosting an abundance of bird species including at least seven species of sparrow. Please be prepared for an adventure on rough roads. You will need a 4×4 vehicle that you are comfortable driving through some sections of road that are narrow and overgrown with brush. This tour is brought to you in partnership with Nature Conservancy of Canada.
