Do you love the Columbia Wetlands, birds, and being outside? If so, participating in the Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey (CWWS) may be for you!

Migratory bird surveys will be occurring this spring from 8am-11am on each of the three following dates:

• Tuesday, April 3rd
• Tuesday, April 10th
• Monday, April 16th

We are currently seeking citizen-scientists like you to survey for birds near Golden, Parson, Spillimacheen, Brisco, Radium, Wilmer, Lake Windermere, Invermere and Columbia Lake. A major goal of the CWWS is to collect baseline data necessary for achieving Important Bird Area (IBA) status for the Columbia Wetlands; data you collect may be used to help designate the Columbia Wetlands as an IBA!

If you are interested in participating in the waterbird surveys or wound like to know more, please email racheldarvill@gmail.com or call us at 250-344-5530.
