Event Description

NOTE: Open to ages 19+ only, please. All attendees will get the EyeLoveBirds Vancouver bird app for free on their iPhone, as well as a printed checklist of the common birds of Stanley Park. Enjoy a beer by donation before the walk starts!

Calling all closet birders and the nature-curious to join Rise of the Hipster Birdwatcher, a laid-back nature walk around Lost Lagoon, hosted by EyeLoveBirds.

A bird walk, if you haven’t been on one before, is quite literally a walk-in-the-park… but with the express purpose of observing birds. This walk is primarily for non-birders—people who like to get outdoors and enjoy nature, but don’t consider themselves birders… yet. Embark on a new hobby to get friends and family rolling their eyes at your new “thing.”

While we will be providing tips on identification and interesting facts about our local species along the way, mostly we want to offer a casual, social and fun get together, with a cold beer to get you started.

Non-hipsters are welcome, too.
