Along with the Kamloops Naturalists, the Nicola Naturalist Society is responsible for reporting on the Douglas Lake Plateau Important Bird Area (IBA). Set up in 1996 this is one of the largest IBAs in B.C. It covers important migration staging areas for Sandhill Cranes and extensive breeding habitat for many waterfowl species and grassland specialists.
