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.
