North Okanagan Heritage Field Trip – Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary

Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary 12408 Coldstream Creek Rd, Coldstream

Be a tourist in your own town or take summer guests to learn more about this tucked away hidden gem, Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary, on the shores of Kalamalka Lake. Join a small group tour of the 4.25 acre nature reservation kept to preserve habit and wild spaces for birds and wildlife in Coldstream. View the Native Plant Garden, with five different sub-zones of plants native to the climate of the North Okanagan, the osprey platform with nesting young, the Giant Pacific Willows, which are often home to Great Blue Heron, and the wood ducks who nest in trees on shore. Take in the valley from the viewing platform and learn about the legacy of the Lydia Bishop, who left her beautiful lakefront property “for the birds”!
