Maps

Here’s some worthwhile links to maps and documents that contain maps:

Here’s a link for federally-protected areas in BC https://www.ec.gc.ca/ap-pa/default.asp?lang=En&n=0D0A02C4-1

Did you know most of the ecosystem biodiversity in the South Okanagan and South Similkameen occurs in the valleys, not the uplands? If you don’t believe me, check out this biodiversity map from the BC government http://a100.gov.bc.ca/appsdata/acat/documents/r42389/SOSRD_Biodiversity_poster_Final_1396368347789_6365270467.pdf

The South Okanagan-Similkameen Biodiversity Conservation Strategy poster (see link in the previous paragraph) takes a few minutes to download, but it is worth the trip. If you can’t read the text, simply swipe your mouse across the bottom-centre of the poster. Doing so will cause some symbols to appear. Click on the “+” symbol to increase the image. Then use the sliding sidebar and the sliding bottom bar to move around in the poster.
