If you would like to see a new BC Region started and featured on this website and can assist to make this happen, here is what we need:

  • A listing and some details on birding locations for that region
  • A species list of birds that regularly occur in that region
  • A listing of local clubs or birder contacts that beginners and visitors can contact
  • Any other important information such as books, travel information, parks info, web sites, etc. that would be of benefit to new birders or visitors in that region.

Contact Kevin Slagboom if you would like to help!
