Come learn about the the birds you can see and hear at the Burnaby Lake, learn how to use the latest apps to help you on your birding journey, sign up up for a guided birding outing, and how to make your home and community bird friendly.
From gulls to sandpipers, eagles to plovers, many species of birds rely on the Fraser watershed as a source of food and shelter. At this time of year, it’s extra busy with migratory birds stopping by for a rest, or to stay over the summer! Together they form a key part of the amazing biodiversity that exists along the mighty Fraser River.
It’s Vancouver Bird Celebration and we are so grateful for the love of birds that staff, volunteers and collaborators bring to the Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) community! Come drop in and appreciate some photos by Frank Lin or join a relaxing birding tour.
Burnaby’s favourite springtime celebration now includes an additional Micro event. Join us at Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area on May 27, where you can participate in activities and demonstrations while enjoying free entertainment.
Burnaby Blooms promotes the long-term sustainability and the ecological health of our community in a fun and creative environment. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for hours of fun at the City's favourite spring festival.
The variety of habitats at Blackie Spit will offer up a diversity of lovely birds. Family fun, bird displays, nest box building, eagle mask craft, and a special talk on the raptors around us. Dress for the weather, bring binoculars if you have them and a water bottle.
This is your chance for a meet and greet with some of nature's most beautiful birds, offered through the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L). O.W.L specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors from all over B.C. Learn about how the birds find their way to O.W.L., how they are cared for, and eventually released back into nature. Participants will also meet the teaching birds up close. Photo ops are available (no flash please).
Participants are introduced to the research techniques required for monitoring migratory birds and the population ecology and ecosystem dynamics of wild bird populations.
Join us for an exciting and educational experience as we observe and study these tiny, but mighty creatures. Our experts will demonstrate the delicate process of safely extracting birds, banding, and releasing hummingbirds,
