This year, the Year of the Bird, Boundary Bay Park Association’s “Mother’s Day” Tea, which celebrates World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD), will be held on Saturday May 12 at Cammidge house from 12:30 to 2:30. The theme for 2018 is Conservation.
Join us at historic Cammidge House near Centennial Beach to celebrate the amazing journeys of migratory birds. Delta is privileged to provide a safe refuge for thousands of wintering waterfowl, a stop-over on the Pacific Flyway for thousands of tiny shorebirds to feed and rest and a place for other migrants to feed and/or breed.
There will be fun and educational displays to explore from 12:30 to 2:30 and a guided birding walk with Valerie Fuller of the Delta Naturalists Society from 1:15 to 2:00 followed by refreshments.
Delta Naturalists Society will have their always fascinating display along with Birds Studies Canada, Metro Vancouver Parks Interpreters and for the first time at this event, the Delta Home Learners Club, part of NatureKids, BC. Boundary Bay Park Association will have information on how you can help keep Boundary Bay Regional Park in its wonderful natural state and the monitoring program which will chart the success of the nest boxes erected to attract tree swallows.
We’ll have awesome facts about bird migration and tips on conservation.
This is definitely a family-friendly event so bring the kids. A love of birds and nature encouraged at a young age will stay with them forever.
This event is hosted by Boundary Bay Park Association with support from Metro Vancouver and the City of Delta.
