Amazing Animals of the Okanagan

February 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Amazing Animals of the Okanagan is a program for families, and anyone who is young at heart and loves learning about the biodiversity of the Okanagan!

With the help of museum educators, you will explore animal boxes with a rare opportunity to don our “curators’ gloves” and handle animal skulls and fur. Use critical thinking to discover the food, habitats and characteristics of some well-known and not-so-well-known local animals before embarking on your next mission.

With your new animal knowledge, you will complete an interactive scavenger hunt! Along the way, you will learn some animal names in nsyilxcən, compare your hand to a bear paw, and spot the most colourful birds in the grasslands.

For more information, contact Jen Garner, Head of Programming, at education@kelownamuseums.ca or 250-868-4836.
