Join us at 10:30am for tea and bannock, and enjoy the final day of the Pacific Coast Portraits exhibit.

At 11:00 am, Kevin Bell will deliver a presentation on the history of Purple Martins at Maplewood Flats, as well as touch on Field Research procedures during breeding season, and nest box clean out methods.

Starting at 12 noon, interested participants can assist with collecting some of the nest boxes from the mudflats, and join a hands-on workshop to analyze the contents of the nest boxes. It’s FREE but please register so we can ensure proper protective clothing and equipment is on hand. To register for the afternoon workshop, email your name and phone number to Lianne Payne at ed@wildbirdtrust.org

Today is the last day to purchase your favourite print from the Pacific Coast Portraits exhibit and sale with local AFC artists.

Proceeds from print sales support the artist (50%), Artists for Conservation (25%), and WBT (25%).
