Throughout the year the Osoyoos Desert Centre hosts several lectures and workshops as well as our popular Movie & An Expert series in which we screen a film focusing on local, national or international environmental issues and present it along with an engaging guest speaker.
Please note that due to COVID restrictions, our Movie & an Expert programs have been suspended until further notice.
