World Oceans Weekend – Coastal Birding Workshops (Comox Valley)

June 9 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Rémi Torrenta from Birds Canada and the Comox Valley Naturalists Society for a fun Coastal Waterbird Workshop on June 9 during the World Oceans Weekend. There are two events and no registration is required:

Part 1: In-person presentation (June 9, 3:00–4:30pm, at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive, Comox, BC) Refresh your birding skills with a presentation + trivia about the local coastal waterbird species, and learn more about our coastal programs at Birds Canada, and how you can help monitor the health of our coasts

Part 2: Coastal bird walk (June 9, 5:00–7:00pm, meeting location near washrooms on Goose Spit) Discover the birds and biodiversity of Goose Spit, and practice your bird ID and counting. Binoculars and spotting scopes will be available to borrow. Please dress for the weather. Participants who are interested in joining our team of Coastal Waterbird Surveyors or Beached Bird Surveyors will then have the opportunity to receive specific training, equipment, and identification guides (coastal waterbird ID guide and/or beached bird ID guide) for the surveys, later this summer.
