Led by Langara College Instructor, Paul Preston, this walk will introduce you to the birds found at Stanley Park. See birds like Chestnut-backed chickadees, Anna’s hummingbirds, and Wilson’s warblers while meeting new people and sharing in the outdoors.
This program will meet at the Stanley Park Rose Gardens near the white archways. Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.
About your Bird Guide
My name is Paul Preston and I am a Biology Lab Instructor at Langara College in Vancouver. I have been big on birds since I was a kid and did my MSc in Ornithology in 2013 studying the behaviour of the Common Poorwill. I am also the BC Regional Coordinator of the Nightjar Survey Program with Birds Canada and am super interested in nocturnal creatures of all kinds as well as citizen science. In addition to birding, I also spend time playing video games, table top games and watching RuPaul. As an openly gay man living downtown, I am often finding opportunities for birding community to be scarce and hopefully we can change that!
