Nature Talks (Osoyoos Desert Centre)

August 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Weird and Wonderful Creatures of the BC Interior – Saturday August 24th

Did you know there are lizards that shoot blood out of their eyes to defend themselves? Or that we have Okanagan birds that sound like velociraptors? From colourful designs to quirky behaviours, here in the British Columbia interior, there exist many weird and wonderful animals whose habits never cease to amaze us. Against all odds these creatures have discovered new ways to thrive in BC’s beautiful and rugged desert-like environment. Join ODC Conservation Guide Anika Wulff to discover fascinating defences, strange eating routines, and super cool adaptations of animals from all around you in the Okanagan. Having finished her second year studying biology and environmental studies at the University of Victoria, Anika is passionate about ecosystem interactions.

All Nature Talks start at 11 am and are free with admission.
Admission: Family – $25 (Max 2 adults & children under 18); Adults – $10; Seniors (65+) – $9; Youth (ages 6-17) – $8; Children (5 and under) – Free
Admission to the Desert Centre includes either a guided or self-guided tour. Choose the option that works best for you.
