A big thank you to all the leaders and participants for a successful Christmas Bird Count in Canatara Park on December 29. The data that was gathered is submitted to Bird Studies Canada and adds important information about bird populations and helps to develop conservation strategies. Fifteen children participated in the count and they were able to use binoculars provided to the young naturalists program with funding from Nova Chemicals and Vortex Binoculars. Mike Kent (Young Naturalists leader), Sean Jenniskens, Amy Virostek, Brandon Edwards, Brandy Fenwick, Sharon Nethercott, and Anne Goulden all assisted with the bird count.
