Come Birding with Me as we explore birding and biodiversity on a free guided walk for the BIPOC community.

Led by ecologist Jaylen Bastos, this walk will introduce you to the birds found in Stanley Park. See birds like great blue herons, red-tailed hawks, and belted kingfishers while meeting new people and sharing in the outdoors.

This program will meet at the Stanley Park Nature House on Lost Lagoon.

Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes in advance of the program.

This program is a part of the Birding with Me series, collaboratively organized by the Canadian Wildlife Service and Stanley Park Ecology Society, and supported by Birds Canada.
