Greetings bird-lovers and naturalists! Spring is on its way and Nature Alberta’s Bird Conservation...
Greetings bird-lovers and naturalists! Spring is on its way and Nature Alberta’s Bird Conservation Program would like to remind you of upcoming spring birding opportunities! The Snow Goose Chase is taking place April 26 and 27 near Tofield and the Beaverhill Lake area. If you are interested in checking out this family-friendly event, be sure to visit their website.
The weekend of May 24th and 25th is the annual May Day species count. Try to count as many birds as you can over the weekend, either by sight or sound, and log your data. Better yet, come as a family and count birds with us in the Edmonton River Valley on the 24th at Whitemud Park and celebrate International Migratory Bird Day! There will be plenty of bird-themed activities for the whole family to get involved in. Visit our Facebook and Twitter pages often as details about this exciting event will be posted soon.
Finally, there are some great opportunities to participate in loon surveys over the coming season. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Bird Conservation Program team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 780-427-8124. We hope to see you out at these fantastic birding events this spring!

Today, this same organization, known as Nature Alberta serves a membership of over 40 clubs and represents thousands of individuals across the province. Every one of these individuals share a passion for natural history.
