Free Nature Walks

Join the naturalists of Nature Calgary as they explore Calgary’s wild areas!  All walks are free, and open to the public – you don’t have to be a member of Nature Calgary to participate.  There is no need to call the leader unless that is specified.  Just show up and go birding!

To see the list of upcoming Nature Calgary field trips, go to their Field Trips page here.

Are you willing to share your knowledge with others? If so, consider leading a field trip for Nature Calgary in your favourite birding area.  Please call Ian Ross at 403-246-4213 or email


There are also free birding field trips every Saturday morning at 9 am, conducted by the Wild Bird Store (5901-3 Street SE) and led by Jim St. Laurent.  Phone the store at 403-640-2632 for details.


Paid birding courses are offered through the Friends of Fish Creek Park.  To register or to get on a waiting list, phone Chris at 403 238-3841 or see their web page here.
