Join Birds Canada biologist Remi Torrenta (he/him) for a try at the infamous birding boardgame – Wingspan! This fun, card-driven game revolves around attracting the best birds and scores to your habitat. And while you don’t need to know about birds to play, you’ll for sure pick up some favourites along the way. This event will be a tournament style, starting with a teaching round, and followed by two rounds of games in split groups. Spend an autumn day with some coffee/hot cocoa, snacks, and some hopefully not too competitive gaming with other queer folks!
We invite all queer, non-binary, gender-queer and trans people to participate!
ABOUT “Queer Friends and Feathers” SERIES
Welcome to the SPES’ Queer Friends and Feathers! We’ll be hosting some free events that focus on different ways we can connect with birds outside in so called “Stanley Park” – whether that is a guided birding tour, art and photography, or learning a more specific skill like bird surveying. This series is for queer and trans people that want to learn more about nature together. Come with a friend or alone, have a snack, and take it easy – you don’t need any experience to appreciate birds!
