I visited Penticton / Naramata on the weekend, and drove down to
Oosooyoos. This allowed me to visit some of the South Okanagan /
Similkimeen area where The Land Conservancy of BC (TLC) has holdings in. This is of interest to me because last August 2009, I was elected to the TLC board.
Friday's local Penticton newspaper had a story about
the Okanagan River conservation and how Western Painted Turtles are
having a resurgence. TLC is listed in the story as helping to play a
role – and I remembered the recent board meeting about our role in the
Okanagan River! I am pleased to be involved in TLC!
And Deb & I saw two moose at Vaseaux Lake where the Okanagan River meanders into wetland.
rare sighting of moose on Vaseaux Lake – even the local park ranger was
surprised to believe it when we showed him this picture!
We also saw baby coots, hawks, turkey vultures, spawning kokanee in Naramata etc.
Here's a display board that lists TLC as one of the property holders for Similkameen River Pines at the bottom of the map.
