We’re Excited to Host our First Instameet!


The animals are awake and the nature flourishing around Hidden Lake this time of the year. The perfect time to be outside, take it all in and capture it. This is the most fun when gathering together and sharing the experience with likeminded people.

We would like to invite you to our first Hidden Lake Instameet on Sunday, May 14th from 2-4pm. We will all meet at Hidden Lake Park at 1188 Long Ridge Drive at 2pm and make our way from there around Hidden Lake and Still Pond. While exploring the area you will be able to take pictures of the wildlife and nature surrounding us and we will have our nature and wildlife blogger Flora with us to give more insight on the animals you can see. Mike from BlueMax Photography will be there as well to assist with any photography questions and will give some advice here and there.

Afterwards we ask you to share some of your pictures on Instagram and to use the hashtag #wildenkelowna so we can repost your great captures on our feed.

Since we are also hosting our #WildKelowna Photo Contest for the third time from May 1st-June 30th with the theme “Wildlife in the Okanagan,” this Instameet will give you a great opportunity to get that perfect shot to enter into the contest. Simply add the hashtag #WildKelowna to your Instagram post to enter the photo contest. For more information about the 2017 #WildKelowna Photo Contest click here.

Currently we are also in the process of redesigning and updating our Wilden “Guide to the Wild Side” and would love to consider some of your photos to be used in this guide.


We would love to see you at our Hidden Lake Instameet on May 14th. Please let us know if you can make it and are planning to attend. Simply RSVP here. 🙂
