NK’MIP Desert Cultural Centre: Celebrate the Legends, the Land and the People. The Centre celebrates thousands of years of a precious Okanagan First Nations culture and habitation on desert lands.
The NK'MIP desert lands are one of Canada's three most endangered eco-systems and home to many endangered plant and animal species. The Centre provides on-site cultural tours, programs, self-guided nature trails, interpretive sites, visitor programs, rapelling in the desert, a gift shop, cultural events and an exciting film called "Coyote Spirit" along with other multimedia productions.
It is also home to rattlesnake research and tagging programs, native sculptures and interactive displays reflecting the unique and contemporary experience of a desert centre based on the rich heritage of the Okanagan people. The Centre's mission is to promote respect and understanding of the living culture of the Okanagan People and conserve and interpret Canada's only desert.
