Description Of This Tour

Discover the beauty of Vaseux Lake and the surrounding area with bird conservationist and biologist Tanya Luszcz and a member of Penticton Indian Band. Search for Lewis’s Woodpeckers and enjoy a light hike in the area of the 2003 wildfire. Learn about some of the traditional ways that were practiced on the land by the Syilx (Okanagan people) and the importance of wildlife trees, woodpeckers, and a variety of other species. This is a richly diverse environment home to White-throated Swifts, Canyon Wrens, California Bighorn Sheep and Western Yellow-bellied Racer.

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.
