Join in the National Audubon Society's annual Christmas Bird Count. With over 120 years of community science the bird count promotes conservation and preservation rather than hunting birds. Some counts have been running every year since then and the CBC now happens in over 20 countries in the western hemisphere! Bring the whole family for a winter adventure in birding!
Join this captivating course that immerses participants in the enchanting world of birds, providing a comprehensive overview of bird identification techniques, habitats, behaviors, and the joy of observing avian wonders in their natural habitats. Through interactive lessons and hands-on field trips, participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to embark on their own rewarding birding adventures.
Join our Guest Speakers and the SWC staff for an introduction to the fascinating world of Alberta’s Northern Saw-whet Owl and participate in a walk on the trails to call and find the owls. Participate in an owl banding demonstration, and be part of a network of citizen scientists working to understand their migration patterns. Register to reserve your spot in the Owl Banding workshop,
