To kick off Bird Week – a week-long series of events to celebrate Vancouver’s birds – there will be an Opening Celebration based at Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park. Join us for family friendly crafts, games and activities! There will be an Instagram worthy photo wall, bird related crafts and various booths to introduce you to the world of birds. This public event is free, so feel free to drop by during the day. Happy Birding! #VanBirdWeek
Date and time
May 11, 2019
Stanley Park Ecology Society
Vancouver, BC Canada
The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
