Across all lands, waters, skies and cultures, birds captivate hearts and minds. We are so excited to have Talaysay Tours leading a walk on this land commonly known as Stanley Park, and sharing Indigenous science and Coast Salish stories tied to the significance of bird species found in this area. Join a Talaysay Tours Cultural Ambassador to learn to identify local birds and to gain insight into their stories and significance.
We are proud to include this program in our Vancouver Bird Celebration events. Check out our other free events from May 14 to May 29 and get excited about birds with us!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
