Wings Over the Rockies Nature Festival

May 8, 2023 May 14, 2023

Wings Over the Rockies is an annual event that enhances community spirit and cooperation as volunteers, local businesses, naturalists, conservancy groups, and special guests work together to provide activities that educate and instill an appreciation of nature. Visitors who come to the valley for this festival make a positive economic impact on our local businesses.

In the words of our patron, Robert Bateman, world-famous wildlife artist and environmentalist: “The Wings Over the Rockies Nature Festival conjures up an image of all that is great about Canada . . . spectacular scenery, abundant nature and a warm, human spirit of getting together in a worthy cause. The world over, when people think of Canada, they think of the glory of the Rockies. When you combine this with the upper reaches of the mighty Columbia, you have an unsurpassed natural setting. The continuous wetlands along the river are perfect as breeding areas and staging places for a significant number of bird species. This and the many other habitats provide a variety of ecosystems which will bring joy to any naturalist. But the idea of this festival goes far beyond a ‘get-together’ of serious naturalists. It is an ideal chance for everyone to learn and share the excitement of nature ‘in the flesh’ so to speak.”
