Volunteer at Christmas Bird Count

Calling Volunteer Bird Guides!

Join Nature Alberta on December 17th at Gold Bar Park  to be a part of something truly special and volunteer to guide bird watching walks to inspire a love of nature in the next generation!

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect families with nature and participate in some incredible citizen science! We'll also have a presentation from the Beaverhill Bird Observatory (BBO) featuring a very special guest Tansi, the Great Horned Owl! 🦉❄️ that families and volunteers will get to meet.

The event will run from 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm. The bird-watching walk  will take place at 2:00 pm after the presentation from BBO.

Volunteer Duties include:

  • Assisting with event set up and take down
  • Lead families along trails searching for birds
  • Helping identify birds as you're able

All levels of birding knowledge are welcome. Previous experience with bird watching is welcome but not required. This will be a great opportunity to build your skills as well!

Volunteer Photographer

  • (Position filled. Thank you to everyone who shared interest!)

We are also looking for an enthusiastic photographer to help document this event through pictures!

Volunteer Duties Include:

  • Take photographs of the event's activities without getting recognizable faces in the final photos
  • Edit and transfer photos to Nature Alberta staff after the completion of the event using a Google Drive folder

Please dress for the weather. We will be outside for most of the time walking along the trails, so warm clothes are a must. You're also welcome to bring any binoculars or guidebooks you'd like. Water bottles are great too.
