Nature Based Activities

Perched atop the grasslands just south of Vernon the Allan Brooks Nature Centre (ABNC) is your place to satisfy your natural curiosity and reconnect with the joys of nature.

Since 1996, Allan Brooks Nature Centre has grown from a discontinued weather station into an interpretive centre with activity rooms, display space, indoor and outdoor classrooms, picnic and play areas, a pond, native plant gardens, viewpoint sitting areas, and a wheelchair friendly grasslands trail around the grounds. ABNC displays and features a variety of nature-associated learning opportunities, information, activities and experiences. Come explore the rich natural history of the Okanagan Basin. Here you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking 360º views of our region, including Okanagan, Kalamalka, and Swan Lakes and plenty of opportunities to nurture your own nature.
