Attention birders, we invite you to be a citizen scientist this June in Manning Park!
The Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning has regrettably had to cancel their annual Bird Blitz in Manning Park due to COVID-19 concerns, however, we invite you to do some self-guided birding in Manning Park and report your findings to the Hope Mountain Centre. This will allow some data to still be reported for the 2020 season.
From the Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning:
If you would like to participate in gathering bird data for Manning Park, there are forms to collect the data on this website, under “Additional Information.” You are asked to identify an area from the Manning Bird Blitz Designated Birding Areas & Birds to Watch For, and report what birds you have seen on the Field Tally Sheet.
Please remember to fill in all appropriate information including the Area, date and birds you see. After you have finished your birding, you can email your findings to the Hope Mountain Centre.
Please note that not all areas are open in the park, due to snow. For example, the Heather Trail and other high alpine trails are not open, or may be inaccessible due to snow. For updated information on the trails, please see the BC Parks Trail report on our Maps & Stats page.
For any other information for reporting birds in the park, please contact the Hope Mountain Centre program assistant Tunde Murphy.
Guests are reminded to follow all provincial and federal guidelines for social distancing while in the park.
