From bird nerd to bird curious, from wise old owl to adventurous tot, there is an event for everyone during Bird Week: May 11-17, 2019. 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 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
Bird Week is run by members of the City of Vancouver and Vancouver Park Board’s ad hoc Vancouver Bird Advisory Committee made up of staff, individuals and community groups with an interest in birds.
