What We Do

SCHOOL PROGRAMS

The southern interior of British Columbia has one of the highest concentrations of at-risk species in Canada. One-quarter of the red-listed (endangered) vertebrates are found here, as well as at least 100 at-risk plant species and nearly 300 rare insects and spiders. Saving the region’s threatened habitats is vital to conserving the province's rich biological diversity.

School Tours

Each year the Osoyoos Desert Society provides educational tours to hundreds of students. Elementary through post-secondary classes are able to explore and learn about the local environment during specially-themed guided tours. Programs also include a chance to visit the hands-on displays in the interpretive building. 

Free programs for School District 53 classes are
made possible thanks to on-going funding from Fortis BC.
