Blackbirds, crows, and chickadees – Get to know your birds during the Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration!
The Celebration is a two-week 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 Greater Vancouver Bird Celebration, there will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across the Lower Mainland.


Celebrate birds in Vancouver at events online and in-person; there's something for everyone at every ability level!

Lets make some noise for the birds we all love!


Last year we celebrated with you by sponsoring bird talks and events, but this year we thought we'd get a bit more personal too!

Alongside sponsoring events at VanDusen Gardens, we're celebrating with you at our Vancouver location.
