Description Of This Tour

Join in a celebration for Gwen Barlee, an incredible advocate for the environment. Gwen grew up in Summerland where she enjoyed hiking and exploring the hills and grasslands with her historian father and MLA, Bill Barlee. The fond memories of her childhood inspired her devotion to the establishment of a national park in the South Okanagan. A long-time National Policy Director for Wilderness Committee she touched hundreds of lives as a mentor, ally, activist, leader and friend. Wild rivers, forests, meadows, all creatures big and small from bees to killer whales – these were Gwen’s loves. She stood for the public good, defending parks and waterways against all those who would exploit them for personal profit. Refreshments and snacks following official remarks. Please register to assist with catering requirements.
