Kootenay-Columbia Discovery Centre Society
Over 300 species of birds call this wetland home
A place to learn, explore and enjoy
Join us for some great programming this summer!
We have three new voyageur canoes this year and we are excited to get people out in the wetland exploring the sites and sound of this amazing place! The old green canoes, circa 1974, lived a good long life and needed to retire! The new canoes are made by Hellman Canoe and Hay Barn Canoe Company and are from the same mould used in Canada’s 1967 centennial celebration. So, there is a little piece of history to enjoy there! Tours are offered daily when open.
The Jr Naturalist summer nature camps for ages 6-13 will run in July and August this year (spots are booking fast, so get in touch to reserve one for your budding Naturalist). Nature movies nights, sunrise and sunset paddles, Family Fun Days, Hot Days of Summer and much more are coming to the wetland near you this spring and summer! Check out the detailed 2019 Program Guide!
We hope to see you in the wetland this summer!
