Bird Walks @ Various Parks
May 11 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Join a local naturalist for a series of free monthly walks (September through May) to discover Surrey’s birds. Learn how these amazing creatures are adapted to their habitat and why our local urban parks are so important for their survival.  Become familiar with many birds species and their habitats, improve your identification skills and find answers to all your birding questions!

These walks are drop-in, rain or shine. Please dress for the weather and bring a pair of binoculars and a field guide, if you have them.

Explore shaded forest, flower gardens and a pond while looking for birds. Meet in the playground parking lot north of 104A Avenue.
