Spring Birding Course 2016

The Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park Society is now taking registrations for its popular Spring Birding Course. This 12-week course starts March 28 and runs until the end of June. You can choose to go out one or two days per week. Field trips, which take place in a variety of parks throughout the city, last 2.5 to 3 hours.

Once again there is a very nominal $5 fee for youth 16 or younger accompanied by a registered adult. This is a great opportunity for parents to take their kids birding and learn about nature in our city!

For more information and to register, go to this page.

  1. My husband and I would love to join theSpring Birding Course if you still have available space. We are keen birders and fairly new to Calgary. I look forward to your reply.
    Thanks Sue

  2. The mountain bluebirds are seriously beautiful. I’ve never seen one in person but appreciate stumbling upon the photos here… I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for pretty birdie’s on my next hike!
