Field Trips

Bird Studies Canada offers field trip programs at our national office in Port Rowan, Ontario and at Long Point Bird Observatory during fall (September-November) and spring (April-June). Students are introduced to local birdlife, learn about bird banding as a technique used to monitor migrating birds, and participate in hands-on Citizen Science programs. Our bird education programs promote conservation awareness and stewardship for birds and the environment.
