Description Of This Tour
Take a look at the abundance of life in the streams above Summerland with Head Taxonomist Scott Finlayson of Cordillera Consulting. Learn about sampling methods and the importance of macro-insects to the stream ecosystem and how many levels of industry and government use insects in determining stream health. Participants will see just how many creatures live in our nearby waterways with explanations of some of the adaptations they have that allow them to thrive locally.
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.
