Summer 2021 Updates!

Thank you to all who supported the Woodhaven Milkweed Project! We have some new projects and events coming up, so stay tuned for the newsletter that will be coming to member emails very soon!

A notice about Forest Yoga is coming this week, and then a full newsletter will arrive soon after that!


You can still purchase a packet of seeds of “Showy Milkweed” (Asclepias speciosa) for $5.


Milkweed is an easy-to-grow, deer-proof native plant in the Okanagan. It has a gorgeous flower and wonderful seed pods.  Milkweed is a very good plant to support wasps, native bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies of all kinds and is an excellent choice for people’s gardens in the Okanagan!

You can plant it directly in the garden right now!

For $5 you’ll receive a package of 15 -20 seeds and a handout about milkweed and how to grow it.   To receive your packet of seeds, email nancyholmes.nh@gmail.com  BEFORE APRIL 15 2021.

All proceeds go to Friends of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Society to support our work to protect and improve the overall well-being of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy for the benefit of the public and future generations.




THE OPEN WINDOW SKETCH CLUB spring project  is paused for the summer, but there is still a Facebook group and several members are participating in other connected groups both online and in person. Rose Maunder, with RDCO, is currently offering a Kaloya park nature sketch session and she may be able to offer more at other parks in the near future.

The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.
