  • Keynote speaker Dave Quinn, CBC radio’s “outdoor adventure guy.”
  • Photography workshop hosted by well-known West Kootenay photographer Jim Lawrence.
  • Raptor specialist Brian Baxter from Libby Montana.
  • Returning bird experts Dr. Rick Page, Daryl Calder, Pat Michell, Ed and Hazel Beynon, Peter Wood and Peter McIver will be leading Saturday and Sunday morning birding tours.
  • A variety of valley events have been planned along with several activities for children.
  • New this year, is something called “Biologist in your Back Yard”. On Sunday, Ed McMackin has offered to visit your back yard and identify all those mystery birds, butterflies, plants, and wild animals.
  • And of course, more food, wine, cheese and juice all from the Creston Valley.
