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.

"Regional Parks in the Central Okanagan - Connections to Nature”

The Regional Parks system in the Central Okanagan is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2014.  From a humble beginning on the shore of Kalamalka Lake at Kaloya Regional Park, the Regional Parks program has been a very successful partnership of local communities that now manages 5000 acres of regionally significant parkland throughout the Central Okanagan.

This presentation will highlight the history of the RDCO Regional Parks program and showcase some of the steps that are being taken to ensure that our communities are connected to nature.

Our Speaker Murray Kopp is the Director of Parks and Police Services for the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO).
