Hi birders and banders,

VARC is pleased to announce that it will host two Family Day sessions this spring: (

Family Days are always popular and provide parents and children with an engaging and interactive educational experience, fostering awareness and appreciation of birds and the environment.

The program is a structured morning field trip to VARC’s Colony Farm Banding Station where participants are introduced to the research techniques required for monitoring migratory birds and the population ecology and ecosystem dynamics of wild bird populations, in an age specific way. Parents and children learn about bird migration; the various habitats and communities they depend on during both spring and fall migration and the breeding season; and the conservation actions required to protect these habitats to ensure the long-term survival of bird species.

Please forward this via your social networks to any people who may be interested in attending.

Thanks and happy spring birding and banding!

Derek Matthews - Vancouver Avian Research Centre
