Blackbirds, crows, and chickadees – Get to know your birds during the Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration. The Celebration is a two week series of events to celebrate Greater Vancouver’s birds. It was inspired by World Migratory Bird Day, a United Nations-sponsored initiative that recognizes the importance of birds as key indicators of our environment’s health. During Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration, there will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across the Lower Mainland.
The Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration is organized by the Vancouver Bird Advisory Committee – a collaborative partnership of non-profits, artists, and other institutions, in partnership with City of Vancouver and Vancouver Park Board – who assist cities, municipalities and organizations in Greater Vancouver to celebrate birds throughout the region.
