Our buttons take flight during Bird Week!
From bird nerd to bird curious, from wise old owl to adventurous tot, there is an event and buttons for everyone during Vancouver Bird Week: May 6 – 13, 2017.
Bird Week is a week-long series of events to celebrate Vancouver’s birds. It was inspired by World Migratory Bird Day, a United Nations-sponsored initiative that recognizes the importance of birds as key indicators of our environment’s health.
During Bird Week, spread your wings at over 40 bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions, and lectures across Vancouver.
The Vancouver Bird Strategy recommended the continuation and expansion of Bird Week to educate and raise awareness about the importance and vulnerabilities of native bird species. Bird Week is part of a global compaign to raise awareness and promote conservation of migratory birds.
