Visiting Phase 1

A. Okanagan Lake to Lakeshore Rd


A1 - Outfall of Mission Creek into Okanagan Lake during spring melt from the mountains above Kelowna. During September discharge in Mission Creek is often as low as 1 CMS (cubic metres per second). At the time this photo was taken the discharge was probably over 60 CMS. At times like this, when the discharge is high, river beds, riffle structures and pools are made.









A2 - Large sandbars form here each year. In Summer they attract many recreational visitors & species of birds, both local and migratory.
