Peachland

Welcome to Peachland, a community of ~5500 people on the western shore of Okanagan Lake, in BC’s Okanagan Valley!

Our Peachland site is run by Mark Force, a member of the Okanagan RASC. Mark’s teenage passion for astronomy was rekindled when he and his wife moved to Peachland from a big city 25 years ago. Dave Gamble, a fellow member of RECON and the RASC, got Mark interested in the RECON project a couple of years ago, and Mark has never looked back!

The picture below shows Mark setting up his telescope for nighttime viewing at the Mount Kobau Star Party.
