Dedicated Giving

The Wild Bird Trust of BC provides opportunities to mark major life events in a meaningful way, while supporting our valuable conservation and restoration work. By purchasing a bench, tree, or custom art feature sited in a special location at the Flats, residents may honour a dearly departed family member or friend, or celebrate a significant event such as a birth or marriage.
