Creston

Amid the grain elevators and fertile farm fields of the Creston Valley lies the town of Creston. If entering the valley from the east, stop and taste the fruit of the farmers' labour at any of the numerous grower-owned stands along the side of the road.One of Creston’s most well-known attractions, the Glass House, was built before its time, in the spirit of today’s “reduce, reuse, recycle” way of thinking. The 1,200-square-foot house was the brainchild of David Brown whose past in the funeral business first sparked the idea. He collected over 500,000 empty embalming fluid bottles and set about building a house. The Glass House, 40 km (25 mi.) north of Creston, is open for tours throughout the year, but be sure to call to make an appointment during the winter months. For a tour of a different kind, stop at the Columbia Brewery during the summer months. Explore the brewery to learn how they have been making beer for almost half a century, and sample the finished product. 

Home to 7,000 hectares (27 sq. miles) of lush, fertile wetlands, the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area has been designated a Ramsar site - a wetland of international importance. These wetlands provide homes to 265 species of birds and ducks, as well as other animals such as the rare Coeur d'Alene salamander. Stroll the boardwalk trail above the marsh to climb to the top of the three-story bird watching tower. Don't forget your binoculars! Pack a picnic lunch and spend the night camping among 300-year-old cedar trees. 

Located at the junction of Highways 3 & 3A, Creston is 122 km (76 mi.) southeast of Castlegar. The town is serviced by commercial bus lines, and is only 14 km (9 mi.) from the Canada/US Border. Airlines from other major centers in Western Canada fly into Cranbrook, 106 km (66 mi.) northeast of Creston, as well as Castlegar.Population: 5,089Elevation: 597 m (1958 ft.)Average July Temperature: 26.8ºC (80.2ºF)Average Jan Temperature: -0.8ºC (30.6ºF)
