3rd Annual WBT Photo Exhibition & Coast Salish Wild Birds Calendar 2021

Calling all Wild Bird Trust of BC nature photographers!

Whether you’re a professional or a beginner nature-loving photographer, we invite you to submit your favourite images! Share your love for the birds, plants, insects  and wildlife at the Conservation Area at Maplewood Flats.

We strongly encourage submissions from youth, Coast Salish and Indigenous Peoples, Black & People of Colour, women, LGBTQ and people with diverse abilities.

The competition consists of large-format digital photos taken at Maplewood Flats of plants and flowers as well as birds and wildlife.  Up to 20 photos/photographers will be selected for exhibition at the Nature House.  

In addition to being included in the exhibit, related promotions, and invited to the opening reception, winning photographers will receive a high quality 11” x 16” print of their work.  Photographers will also have the option to have their winning photo submitted for consideration in our Coast Salish Wild Bird Calendar 2021.   Winning photographers will each receive three 2021 Calendars.

The exhibit will run from Sunday, October 25 – January 31, 2021

The Flats are home to 4, blue-listed (at-risk) bird species, with a total of 251 species which have been spotted or heard within the 76-acre protected area. There is also a variety of non-bird wildlife, as well as beautiful habitat, insects and plants.
