World Migratory Bird Day Guided Outing at Burnaby Lake

Burnaby Lake Nature House 4519 Piper Ave, Burnaby

Everyone is welcome to join the Burnaby Lake Park Association to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with a guided outing at Burnaby Lake to see the migratory birds that stop off to rest and refuel before continuing north on the Pacific Flyway to their breeding grounds. The BLPA guides will share their knowledge and passion for birds while wandering the trails. We'll listen for calls and songs, enjoy discussion on topics such as bird habitat and plumage, and share tips. With spring migration in full swing, it is a great time to see both seasonal visitors and local year-round species.
