Botany and Bird Walk on Bowen Island2019-05-26 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM Location: Bowen Island
Presented by Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association in partnership with Vancouver Bird Week 2019
Explore the botanical and ornithological diversity on Bowen Island on a gentle walk along forest trails to Killarney Lake. Led by VBGA Education Director Gillian Drake, and Birding Guide Richard Wing, we’ll discuss our local ecosystems, and identify native ferns, trees, and more. Learn how to enhance your birding experience by training your ear to focus on the sound of birds calling through the forest. Tour will start at the library, 30m from the ferry dock (no car needed), and will finish in time to board the 1:10 pm ferry back to Horseshoe Bay. Consider making a day of it and visit Bowen’s many cafes, shops and galleries within walking distance of the ferry.
