Burrowing Owl Hits Charitable Milestone Gord Wylie

The Okanagan's Burrowing Owl Estate Winery is proud to announce a milestone in its support of charitable organizations including the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of B.C.

As of Aug. 1, 2017, the winery had raised $1,029,357, which has benefited not only the BOCSBC, but also other worthy organizations such as the South Okanagan Raptor Rehabilitation Centre, the Nature Trust of British Columbia, and Nature Conservancy Canada.

The winery celebrated this achievement with a visit by Pluto, an educational ambassador burrowing owl from the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society, and Lauren Meads, biologist and executive director of the society.

Since 2004, Burrowing Owl Estate Winery has been raising funds for conservation by charging a $3 tasting fee to patrons who sample its wines at its on-site wine shop. Proceeds have been donated on an annual basis, with the BOCSBC receiving the lion's share of the funds.

The BOCSBC has always held a special place in the heart of winery proprietor Jim Wyse, who notes “we're always conscious that we really owe our success to the land we grow our grapes on, and helping this beautiful bird survive is one way we can give back to the earth, for all it gives us.”

“Burrowing Owl Estate Winery has taken on a key stewardship role for this species at risk,” said Mike Mackintosh, president of the BOCSBC.

“Their long-term support has given our society the stability and the means to focus on what is most important — rebuilding a self-sustaining population of these tiny, amazing owls in the southern Interior grasslands of B.C.”

Burrowing Owl winery wishes to thank all those who visited the winery's tasting room over the years, and helped put this amazing bird on the road to recovery.

While imams came out in sermons against selling weapons, arms sales shifted to the black marked. Lakhdar believes that compensation packages the government paid out to revolutionaries early on allowed people to scam the system, dramatically inflating their rosters and using the money to build their own brigades.
