We meet on the third Thursday of each month except June, July and August. June features the annual club picnic. We meet 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Heritage House, Riverside Park, on Lorne Street. Each meeting features a guest speaker presenting on a topic of relevance to the membership. The business meeting follows after the speaker.

Guests are welcome to attend our meetings.

Throughout the year, we host a variety of field trips guided by knowledgeable club members who are willing to share their expertise about the wonderful variety of natural ecosystems in the Kamloops area. Notice of field trips is posted under Upcoming Events. Non-members are welcome to join a field trip. You will be asked to sign a waiver form and pay $1.

Mt Lolo Field Trip Sunday @ Mt Paul Husky
Jul 21 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Sunday, July 21:  Mt. Lolo field trip to view wildflowers and birds.  Meet at Husky at the Mt. Paul and Halston intersection at 9:00 a.m. for carpooling.  Bring lunch, water, sunscreen, binoculars, and mosquito repellent.  Wear layered clothing as it could be cold and windy at the top of the mountain.

The trip will involve stops at a couple ponds, a creek, a couple wildflower meadows, and finally the top of mt. lolo. The road is only paved until part way up, 4 wheel drive isn’t required but trucks, SUVs, and cars with high clearance recommended. We will stop for lunch towards the top of the mountain. The trip doesn’t involve much walking as we’ll be driving from stop to stop.

There is no need to register in advance but consider sending me a quick e-mail so I have a rough idea of how many will be attending. If you can take extra passengers in your vehicle please let me know. If you need a ride to the Husky or need to carpool with someone to the top please e-mail me asap.

Everyone will be asked to sign an attendance form. Non-club members will also be asked to sign a day trip waiver form and pay $1. When carpooling, at trip-end, please offer the driver compensation for gas and wear-and tear on the vehicle.  Consider offering what you feel would be fair if you had been driving that vehicle and would be receiving the compensation.
