The Central Okanagan Naturalists’ Club (CONC) based in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, is a group dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of nature in the Central Okanagan Valley.

It has active groups interested in birding, botany, conservation, education, hiking in the summer (easy, moderate, and more challenging), and skiing in the winter (cross-country and downhill) in the winter. CONC holds monthly meetings with informative and interesting speakers. Many members participate on local, regional, and provincial bodies whose interests reflect ours.

CONC is involved with the Christmas Bird Count, and with the Okanagan Mountain Park Birding Blitz.
