Birding in the Kootenay Rockies gives you the chance to view some of BC's most intriguing bird species.
More than 250 of them call the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area home, while the Columbia River provides wetland habitat for waterfowl, herons, ospreys and eagles. Moberly Marsh near Golden protects the northern portion of the Columbia River Wetlands, and the Wasa Sloughs (north of Cranbrook) are home to waterfowl, eagles, osprey, herons and turkey vultures as well as Canada geese.
Wings Over the Rockies is an annual spring bird festival with more than 50 events over a weeklong period, including nature walks, paddling tours, photography courses, and heritage tours.

The Slocan River is perfect for those that want everything whitewater rafting can offer. You can relax and take in the scenery through the first section of the trip. The water is crystal clear and by early summer becomes warm enough for swimming and floating along beside the raft. In the last section of the trip, the speed of the river increases. It's time to get ready for some action as we introduce you to some really great class II and III whitewater. A rafting trip on the Slocan River is a real treat for families and first timers alike. Contact us for more information on our custom river wilderness expeditions.
