Wetland Birds BioBlitz – Cumberland Winter Bird Project
January 16 @ 8:00 am - January 31 @ 5:00 pm PST
Wetlands flank the entire south side of the Village of Cumberland and they’re filled with birds of all kinds! In fact did you know the Comox Valley is one of the most significant areas for wintering and migratory waterfowl and waterbirds in British Columbia? It’s true! And Cumberland is in the heart of it! Let’s observe, photograph, draw and document the birds of the Cumberland Wetlands. Share your findings HERE:
The Cumberland Winter Bird Project is a public health friendly community project focused on getting to know the winter birds in our backyard, forests, and wetlands over the months of December and January.
The Cumberland Winter Bird Project is part of the CCFS Biodiversity Initiative, a year-round multi-disciplinary initiative is about engaging our community in biodiversity education, research, and action to support habitat protection and ecosystem health in the forests and wetlands surrounding Cumberland. This work helps us to build strong arguments for future land protection.
Get out into nature, participate in citizen science, build community knowledge, and celebrate the avian biodiversity of the Cumberland Forest. Each 2-week period has a theme complete with Zoom workshops, learning links, activities and more. Who knows where this will lead?
