We hold meetings most Thursday evenings with a lecture and discussion. We also host frequent field trips for members to get out into Nature and learn more about this wonderful world we live in.
Members of Nature Vancouver have been working for more than 100 years to promote the enjoyment of nature, to educate ourselves and others about the natural world and to preserve and protect natural areas in the vicinity of Vancouver.
Volunteers are needed to take part in the Vancouver Christmas Bird Count. This year, the count runs from dawn to dusk on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17th.
The goal of the count is to have fun and learn about birds. As a bonus, the data collected helps scientists and others track changes in bird populations across North America and around the world.
Birders at all levels of ability are welcome. More eyes are generally better and beginners can help find birds in each count area, for the experts to identify. Note though that the count lasts for the full day, so it may not be suitable for young birders.
You will need a pair of binoculars, as it’s nearly impossible to identify many birds without them.
To volunteer, look at the Vancouver Count Circle mapand consider which area you’d like to help in. Then send an email with your contact information and preferred count area to [masked]. Colin will ask the appropriate Area Leader to contact you with details.
