Vancouver Bird Celebration

May 14 - May 31


Birds are a gateway to nature, inspiring connection to and appreciation of the world around us. During May, over 250 species of birds can be seen and enjoyed throughout the Lower Mainland. 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, Vancouver Bird Celebration is a two-week series of events to celebrate Greater Vancouver’s birds.

There will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across the Lower Mainland. Events and activities welcome beginners and experts alike. Blackbirds, crows, and chickadees—join the celebration and get to know your birds!

Vancouver Bird Celebration is organized by the Vancouver Bird Advisory Committee, in partnership with City of Vancouver and Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. Stanley Park Ecology Society is the coordinator of events. Visit our website for more details.
