Come Birding with Me as we explore birding and biodiversity on a free guided walk for women and femme identifying people.
Led by species-at-risk biologist Kimberly Dohms, this walk will introduce you to the birds found at Queen Elizabeth Park, territory of the səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ, Skwxwú7mesh-ulh, S’ólh, and šxʷməθkʷəy̓əmaɁɬ Peoples. See birds like Anna’s hummingbirds, northern flickers, and red-breasted nuthatches while meeting new people and sharing in the outdoors.
This program will meet at the corner of Ontario St and 33rd Ave.
Please try to arrive at least 15 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.
About your Bird Guide
“Hello! My name is Kim (they/she) and I’m currently a species-at-risk biologist at the Canadian Wildlife Service and a co-founder of the newly fledged greater Vancouver* area chapter of the Feminist Bird Club. My family’s settler roots are on the Canadian Prairies, but the rest of me migrated here to (*so-called) Vancouver in 2013. I’ve been fiercely passionate about nature since I was a child, which eventually led me to my chosen bird-focused career. Along the way, I’ve encountered a lot of misogyny as a femme human; unfortunately, birdwatching hasn’t been immune to that. Consider joining me if you’ve shared those experiences or just want to be on a bird walk with other women and femmes, no matter your birding level!”
