The first annual Regional Parks Expo takes place in Lake Country May 26-27.

Presented by the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO), the free event will feature over a dozen exhibition booths about parks, the environment, volunteer programs and local wildlife.

Highlights include Nora, a gopher snake at the Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society booth, a rescue vehicle display by Central Okanagan Search and Rescue and histories and oral stories of the smilax people shared at the Sncewips Heritage Museum booth.

“The expo offers a family-friendly opportunity to connect with our regional parks and all they have to offer,” says Isabella Hodson, RDCO parks visitor services supervisor.

Presentation topics include information about bats, connecting with the syilx lands, creatures of the Okanagan and making the outdoors accessible.

The Regional Parks Expo is open Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Creekside Theatre, 10241 Bottom Wood Lake Road, in Lake Country.
