In-person Program

Led by birder Max Edworthy, this walk will introduce you to the birds found in Campbell River Regional Park. See birds like great blue herons, red breasted nuthatches, and chickadees while meeting other queer identifying people and sharing in the outdoors.

This program will meet at the north entrance of Campbell River Regional Park. Click here for the Google Maps point. Please aim to arrive 10 minutes early!

Birding with Me is a part of the Vancouver Bird Celebration and organized collaboratively by Stanley Park Ecology Society and various partners from the Pacific Birds Habitat Joint Venture, including the Canadian Wildlife Service and Birds Canada.

About Your Bird Guide

Max Edworthy (he/they) is a UBC medical student and holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Ecology, Evolution and Genetics from the Australian National University. Their research has included conservation of endangered forty-spotted pardalotes in Tasmania, and cavity-nesting birds in Interior BC. Max used to think birding was boring, but got pulled in after many years of studying birds’ languages and cultures in the field. Campbell Valley Park is one of Max’s favourite spots for birding because the nuthatches are unusually friendly.
