Kelowna, BC, Canada
Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
I'm proud to call the Okanagan Valley home, which includes my hometown of Kelowna and is one of the largest producers of fruit and wine in Canada. The Okanagan also boasts some of Canada's finest places for outdoor activities, like hiking, boating, and skiing. Did you know that name originally translates to "People living where you can see the top"? Or that the area included extablished fur trading posts back in the days of the wild frontier? Or how about that it is near the world's only temperate inland forest?

Shuswap Lake Provincial Park is my favourite place to spend summer vacations with my family. With a kilometre of sandy pebble beach, nothing beats soaking up the sun on a beautiful summer day in the Shuswap! A wide range of awesome activities are available for yourself or the whole family: canoeing, cycling, fishing, hiking, scuba diving, and windsurfing. The facilities at the park include a boat launch, campfires, clean drinking water, picnic areas, playground, showers, and vehicle-accessible camping.

BC Park Conservation
You probably noticed I love and appreciate the unique and beautiful British Columbian landscape I'm proud to call home. I wish this area could last forever and the folks at BC Parks have a conservation policy to do their best to do just that. The policy document was first released in September 1997 and then updated and implemented in September 2014. If you go to their site below you can read many interesting details on areas such as conservation management and information, ecological reserves, climate change, and the future strategy.
