Birds are recognized around the globe as important indicators of the health of our environment. They also inspire connection and provide a gateway to nature. In the month of May over 250 species can be seen throughout the Lower Mainland after they return from their winter migration.
As part of the Vancouver Bird Celebration 2022 (May 14-31), join Rob Lyske and Senaqwila Wyss on a walk at Maplewood Flats , as they highlight the relationship between birds and native plants.
