Nature Talks (Osoyoos Desert Centre)

August 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Drought Resistance in the Plants of the South Okanagan – Sunday August 31st

With just 12 inches of rain annually, the South Okanagan antelope brush habitat is a difficult place to live as a plant. Extreme heat and minimal precipitation have forced the native plant species to adapt in many different ways. ODC Conservation guide Ripley Shubert is currently pursuing a Bachelors of science in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation biology from the University of British Columbia. He will discuss the ways in which the native plants of the area have adapted to their environment on both the individual and ecosystem level.

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.
