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 part of the Okanagan Valley.
CONC has active groups interested in birding, botany, conservation, education, hiking (in the spring, summer, and fall), and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing (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, the January Sweagle (swan and eagle) Count, and with the Okanagan Mountain Park Critter Count.
On 2015 April 14, Dr Richard Christie will present “Voyager: The Little Spacecraft That Could”
37 years after launch the two Voyager spacecraft are returning very useful information about the Solar System. They are now outside the protective cocoon generated by our Sun’s magnetic field.
Dr Christie was head of Geophysical Computing and Research for British Petroleum’s operations in much of North America. He came to Okanagan College in 1988 in Physics and Mathematics & Statistics. He also teaches Astronomy and Exploration Geophysics.
Membership brings you our monthly newsletter (Central Okanagan Naturalist), a subscription to the quarterly BCnature from BC Nature (the Federation of BC Naturalists), and participation in trips and events.
