Celebrate Bird Week, May 2 to 9


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: May 2 -9, 2015.

Bird Week is a week-long series of events to celebrate Vancouver's birds. It 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.

During Bird Week, there will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across Vancouver. All events are free.
