Winter Birding Course

Registration Opens at 8am on December 13!

January 10 to April 3 (12 week program)

Join the Friends of Fish Creek for our ever-popular Birding Course; even though winter is upon us, there are so many birds to see as we visit different City parks, and Fish Creek Provincial Park.  Our exceptional team of skilled volunteer Leaders will guide the way, helping to point out and identify the many bird species we hope you will see, and sharing their wealth of knowledge with you! Fun for all ages.

  • Monday to Thursday: 9:15 am
  • Saturdays: 9:00 am
  • Sundays: 9:00 am and 1:15 pm
