Tucked into the southernmost corner of British Columbia’s beautiful Okanagan Valley is an extraordinary habitat popularly referred to as Canada’s pocket desert. This dry, shrub-grassland is one of Canada’s most fragile and endangered ecosystems. You are invited to experience the beauty and diversity of this unique desert environment at the Osoyoos Desert Centre, a 67-acre nature interpretive facility located 3km north of Osoyoos. Enjoy a guided or self-guided tour along the Centre’s 1.5km boardwalk, explore hands-on displays in the interpretive building, and stroll through the native plant demonstration garden. The Desert Centre is operated by the Osoyoos Desert Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving the south Okanagan’s rich biodiversity for future generations.
