Join us for Birds and Brews: a guided bird walk around Lost Lagoon and the Heron Colony. In May, the herons typically spend a lot of time coming and going from the nests to care for their young, and should be quite active around the lagoon and nests. The walk will end with an early lunch at the picnic tables near the heron colony. Tickets include a limited edition beer collaboration from Stanley Park Brewing that supports Stanley Park Ecology Society’s ongoing conservation and monitoring efforts of the Heron Colony. This event is part of the Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration!  


Get more familiar with the birds around us during the Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration!

Events are open to all and most are free, with programs including bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures.
