Celebrate Bird Week, May 3 to 10
Blackbirds, crows, and chickadees – Get to know your birds during Bird Week
From bird nerd to bird curious, from wise old owl to adventurous tot, there is an event for everyone during Bird Week.
Bird Week is a week-long series of events to celebrate Vancouver's birds. Bird Week was inspired by World Migratory Bird Day, a United Nations-sponsored initiative that recognizes the importance of birds as key indicators of our environment's health.
Check out our events calendar for bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across Vancouver. All events are free.
Bird Week will kick off with an official proclamation and walk at the Vancouver Park Board administration office, 2099 Beach Avenue. Throughout the week, there will be artists’ workshops for kids and families and art exhibits at the Roundhouse and Hillcrest community centres, closing with a series of walks in Vancouver parks to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day.
