Vancouver Bird Week: ABC’s of Birding

This walk is the perfect opportunity to break into the growing world of birding! Join us for an introductory birding walk during the Mother’s Day Bioblitz.

Vancouver Bird Week: Bird Biodiversity

May 8th, 12:00-1:30PM

Stanley Park is a bird lover’s paradise. Over the course of a year, as many as 230 species of birds are easily viewed and heard in the Park’s diverse landscape of forests, wetlands and seashore. We’ll count as many bird species as we can see and hear on this easy 2 hour walk during the Mother’s Day Bioblitz. The event is a collaboration between Stanley Park Ecology Society, Science World and the Vancouver Aquarium.


Please visit Vancouver Bird Week to see other events taking place from May 7th-14th.
