Park Place Lodge
Christmas Bird Count

Description:

Please join the Fernie Nature Club for the annual Christmas Bird Count!

Please meet at 1042 – 10th Ave at 8:30am and then head out for the day. Enter through the carport entrance via the side door. Lunch and snacks will be available when you return.

The information on the numbers of birds and species from this count will be entered into a data base which is used by scientists and researchers who are looking at the trends over the past years. Since Fernie is located between the prairies and the West Coast, we can provide valuable information on what is happening in the bird world.

Please be prepared with the appropriate clothing, water. etc. You will be staying out in the field for the prime counting hours and will then meet up starting anywhere from 2-3pm for lunch/snacks and to turn in your tally.

If you wish to go birding on skis, snowshoes or a fat tire bike, please bring your gear with you. The Nature Club will give you an area that should work for you and you can head out.

If you cannot attend on December 14, you can still participate by counting birds at your backyard feeder during the 3 days before and 3 days after Dec 14 and we will record this as “species being present”.

The Nature Club would also like to start collecting the 2018 fees for BC Nature and the Fernie Nature Club. This year, the family rate at $25 and the single rate at $20. Approximately $15 of this goes to BC Nature which includes a subscription to their magazine, as well as their insurance, project and administration costs.
