Habitat Stewardship

In 1998 the Desert Society received a licence of occupation for the Crown land parcel on which the Desert Centre is located. In 2011 the province extended the Society’s tenure by granting a 30-year lease for the site. The long-term lease makes it possible for the Society to continue its stewardship of the antelope-brush habitat and its restoration and education efforts at the Centre.

Our thanks to the province of British Columbia for the long-term Crown land lease, and to BC Gaming, the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (Area A) and the Town of Osoyoos for their ongoing support of the Society’s habitat conservation, restoration and education programs.
