BC’s grasslands are one of the most endangered ecosystems on the planet. With less than 10% of grasslands in their natural state world wide, we must do what we can to protect these remaining healthy areas.

Osoyoos in B.C.’s South Okanagan is home to one of the highest concentrations of rare and at-risk species in all of Canada. Explore our unique desert landscape from home with this week’s episode of Osoyoos Moments. Learn more about Osoyoos Desert Society and the Osoyoos desert Centre here.
