Hike through High Park counting winter birds as part of North America’s longest running community science program, Christmas Bird Count.

Join us for North America’s longest-running community science program, Christmas Bird Count! This fun and popular winter holiday stewardship event helps both us and avian researchers document winter bird populations in High Park!

We’ll spend the morning hiking through High Park counting all winter birds we see. We’ll conclude at the Nature Centre and compile our numbers over hot chocolate, coffee, tea and some tasty treats.
