Description Of This Tour

Explore, discover, question, identify, examine and ponder the nature and challenges of Penticton’s Urban Forest…the planned and unplanned Green Infrastructure of our city environment. Often overlooked, Penticton’s Urban Forest provides essential wildlife habitat, climate mitigation and human health support. With biologist Lia McKinnon (tree interpretation); Forest Bathing facilitator, Joanne Scofield (short sensory tune-up), and; Penticton Trees FB advocacy group founder, artist, Nature Wise columnist Dianne Bersea…we’ll ramble the streets, by-ways, trails, creek sides and city overlooks of our rapidly changing city. Join us to experience some of the best and not so successful elements of Penticton’s natural environment. Note: this event includes subtle art component to enhance our observation skills, but absolutely no art experience required.
