Description Of This Tour

Oliver Mountain, forming a scenic backdrop to the town of Oliver, is home to a variety of wildlife and acts a critical refuge for a host of species at risk. Retaining some of the largest tracts of the endangered Antelope Brush ecosystem left remaining in the Okanagan valley, the mountain is a biological gem. Join Keith Baric, Parks Planner on a tour of Oliver Mountain to explore its unique features and to hear about some of the present management issues and opportunities. Joining Keith is Dan Denesiuk, Ecosystems Biologist who has worked extensively on Oliver Mountain. This is a strenuous hike meant for physically fit people. Proper footwear (e.g. above the ankle hiking boots) is required.

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.
