Wildflowers of the Okanagan

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am PST

We will be going out to discover the early spring plants that have started to show themselves, including the arrow-leaved balsamroot (also known as Okanagan sunflower), which is in full bloom on the hillside. We’ll go over the plants that we see, and also talk about how we can properly collect and press plants for fun or identification.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
