Take part in the world’s longest running Citizen Science Project!
Volunteers are needed to take part in the Vancouver Christmas Bird Count. This year, the count runs from dawn to dusk on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17th.
The goal of the count is to have fun and learn about birds. As a bonus, the data collected helps scientists and others track changes in bird populations across North America and around the world.
Birders at all levels of ability are welcome. More eyes are generally better and beginners can help find birds in each count area, for the experts to identify. Note though that the count lasts for the full day, so it may not be suitable for young birders.
You will need a pair of binoculars, as it’s nearly impossible to identify many birds without them.
To volunteer, look at the Vancouver Count Circle map and consider which area(s) you’d like to help in. Then send an email to email@example.com, telling him which area(s) you would prefer to volunteer for. The appropriate Area Leader will then be asked to contact you with details.
