Columbia Wetlands Outpost

Why do so many call the Columbia Wetlands one of the world’s living treasures?

Some say it is because the wetlands are home to hundreds of bird, animal and fish species. Others are struck by the sheer beauty of our watery setting nestled between the Rocky and Purcell mountains. What we know is that the mighty Columbia River slows as it winds through the wetlands, setting the pace for us, and, all those who come here.

We are inspired to share this magical place with people drawn to a natural world that is both exhilarating and profound. A day spent in the wetlands is an opportunity to discover one of nature’s treasures and, perhaps, to re-discover what is most important

On our second visit we canoed for the day and enjoyed our self-guided tour. What a perfect way to experience the beauty of the valley, in the quiet of the river! We viewed many birds, beaver homes, and deer. The team have put a lot of effort into wildlife education, and have awesome services for you to experience the river.
