Since 1998, Meadowlark Nature Festival has presented interactive, multi-disciplinary events that explore and celebrate the spectacular natural environment of the Okanagan Similkameen. Taking participants from Canada’s unique desert environment in the south, to the alpine meadows high above the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys, the festival connects people with nature, engaging and inspiring them to protect the unique habitats and species of this region and indeed our planet.

Meadowlark Festival is geared to appeal to a wide cross-section of people and interests, and so events include canoe trips, guided hikes, film screenings, Aboriginal culture, inspirational speakers, bird watching tours, back-country horseback riding, geological tours, astronomy events, art exhibitions, photography, writing and painting workshops, historic hikes, and more. There is truly something for everyone! Each event is led by an expert in their field, such as a biologist, botanist, historian, geologist, naturalist, aboriginal knowledge keeper, astronomer, herpetologist, artist, etc., and groups are kept small so participants get an informative and entertaining, up-close-and-personal, one-on-one experience.

Meadowlark Nature Festival is the flagship event presented each year by the Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Alliance (OSCA), a registered non-profit, charitable organization. For more information on OSCA visit our website at
