IN-PERSON FAMILY PROGRAM
Calling all young birders! Join us in Stanley Park alongside other families and experts for the “Christmas Bird Count”, Birds Canada’s popular annual winter bird survey event. This event is for all children, no matter what you celebrate this time of year! After a quick introduction to bird identification where you’ll learn to tell your kinglets from kingfishers, we will split into groups and head to the forest and foreshore for a 45-minute bird counting adventure. All your hard work will be celebrated when we regroup at the Nature House on Lost Lagoon to share findings. This program is a collaboration of efforts and volunteers from Birds Canada, Nature Kids BC, and Stanley Park Ecology Society.
