For decades, the Meadowlark Nature Festival has encouraged Okanagan residents to get outside and experience the beauty of our own backyard.
After a two-year hiatus, organizers are ready to welcome nature lovers on tours to experience the great outdoors.
The Meadowlark Nature Festival is an interactive event that explores and celebrates the natural environment of the Okanagan-Similkameen region.
“We’re trying to save the world bit by bit,” said Meadowlark Nature Festival program coordinator Paul Lockington.

There are over 40 tours to choose from from Kelowna to Osoyoos and there’s something for everyone. There are tours on horseback, on foot or by bicycle.
“[The tours] are rated on a difficulty scale of zero to four. Four means you need special boots and sticks and zero means you will sit and listen to someone talk. You don’t necessarily have to walk or ride a bike, you can walk and talk,” Lockington said.
