About the Program
Citizen Science! Be an ornithologist for a day! We are updating the Kokanee Creek Provincial Park bird checklist. You can come and be part of this great project by adding your bird sightings in the park to our data. Learn how to identify local birds by sight and by their calls. We will also be looking for bird sign (woodpecker excavations, nests, tracks, owl pellets etc.) and talking about the relationship of birds to their habitat. We may see other wildlife and wildlife sign that will round out our appreciation of the park and its "residents".
This program is based at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in all seasons.
