Meadowlark Festival May 16-20

Meadowlark Festival - it's for the birds too!

Meadowlark Festival prides itself on its diverse programing offering a variety of events that run the gamut from canoeing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking and kayaking. Topics covered include geology, history, ecology, herpetology, biology, conservation, traditional ecological knowledge and more.

Of course, there are many events about birds and birding too!

If you have an interest in birds here are a few events you might want to check out:

Tour 1 - Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area

The unmistakable scent of sagebrush. The sweet songs of sparrows. A stunning vista that stretches as far as the eye can see. Join staff from the Nature Conservancy of Canada at the Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area. Located south-west of Osoyoos, these lands sit in the heart of a crucial migration corridor for species moving between the desert areas of the western United States and the dry grasslands of interior BC. Join us to experience a landscape of rolling hills of sagebrush hosting an abundance of bird species including at least nine species of sparrow. Please be prepared for an adventure on rough roads. You will need a 4×4 vehicle that you are comfortable driving through some sections of road that are narrow and overgrown with brush. This tour is brought to you in partnership with Nature Conservancy of Canada.

Tour 74 - Kilpoola Lake Connectivity IBA Tour

The Important Bird Area (IBA) Program is designated by a specific set of scientific criteria and includes critical sites in over 100 countries. The Kilpoola area is identified as one of these globally sensitive areas. This site is adjacent to the Washington State border which makes it essential for the north and south movement of both plant and animal species. Join South Okanagan Naturalists’ Club member Doreen Olson along with Conservation Northwest’s Sagelands Program lead Jay Kehne to learn about this important connectivity corridor. See interesting lakes, an old growth forest, birds, plants, and exceptional views while enjoying a day in the South Okanagan wilderness.
