From bird nerd to bird curious, from wise old owl to adventurous tot, there is an event for everyone during Bird Week: October, 2020. Bird Week is a week-long series of events to celebrate Greater 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 the Lower Mainland. Most events are free.
“Spending time in nature is good for everyone and birding is a great way to reconnect with the natural world. Vancouver is fortunate to be on the doorstep of Canada’s premier birding hotspot. Bird Week is our way of helping everyone become more aware of birds around Greater Vancouver. Take a look at the events and join in the fun. “
— Rob Butler, Chair of Greater Vancouver Bird Advisory Committee
Greater Vancouver Bird Week is organized by the Vancouver Bird Advisory Committee – a collaborative partnership of non-profits, artists, and other institutions, in partnership with City of Vancouver and Vancouver Park Board – who assist cities, municipalities and organizations in Greater Vancouver to celebrate Bird Week throughout the region.
