Birding

Club members meet every week for birding trips, and participate in annual birding counts.

Members meet every Friday to enjoy botany trips in the Okanagan.

Members meet every week for hiking and biking, and, in winter, snowshoeing. Check this page often schedules and notices.


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.
