Fish Creek Provincial Park Notes

Increase Your Knowledge of Fascinating Bird Species as They Return from Their Wintering Grounds and See Them in Their Local Habitats!

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or expert, this course will help you to identify the newly arriving migrant birds, and allow you to become familiar with the valuable bird habitat near you. The course will take place outdoors in Fish Creek Provincial Park and other natural areas within Calgary. As a fundraiser for the Friends of Fish Creek, these courses will once again be conducted by volunteer instructor and lifelong naturalist Gus Yaki  and other knowledgeable and experienced volunteer instructors.

Each outing is approx. 2.5 hours. Registration Required and fees apply.
