The Osoyoos Desert Centre is a protected island of endangered antelope brush habitat on 67 acres outside Osoyoos. The interpretive nature facility provides a 1.5-km boardwalk taking visitors into the dry, shrub-grassland sometimes referred to as a “pocket desert.”
Animals are less visible during the hot daytime, but at nightfall they are more often seen.
The centre remains open until early October.
