Explore the new Port Coquitlam birding destination, Blakeburn Lagoons with Larry Cowan and members of Nature Vancouver.
Since it’s official opening in April, 2018 it has become a must-bird location for many Vancouver birders. Its eBird list has passed the 115 species mark and continues to grow. After birding this location,birders will drive to another area hotspot to conclude the morning’s outing. Meet at the south end of Elbow Place at 09:00.
Note: The meeting location is at the park’s main entrance located on Elbow Place. Street parking is available on Elbow Place but it is limited. An alternative parking location is at the Blakeburn Elementary School, which is adjacent to the park (it’s about 200 meters to walk from the school to the park). The school’s parking lot can be accessed from Riverside Drive.
Join leader Larry Cowan and members of Nature Vancovuer for this half-day birding field trip to DeBoville Slough and Minnekhada Regional Park. The area is home to many over wintering species with waterfowl in the sloughs, ponds and river and the chance of raptors over the fields. Meet in the parking lot adjacent to the washroom facilities at Cedar & Victoria Drives in NE Coquitlam at 09:00. Birders will position an appropriate number of vehicles in the parking area off Quarry Road in Minnekhada Park for the return trip.
Join Larry Cowan and members of Nature Vancouver on this half-day outing to find American Dippers in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area. Birders have been successful since 2006 finding this quarry.
