Nature Guides B.C.
Welcome to Nature Guides BC
Nature Guides BC is a small publishing and writing company based in British
Columbia, Canada. We have books on Boundary Bay and the Fraser River Estuary,
(near Vancouver) and on the Okanagan. Our goal is to encourage interest in nature
and conservation, especially in areas undergoing rapid urbanisation.
! Field Trips and events ! - lots of events in Delta, BC through the spring
and summer. Also on Migratory Bird Day, May 12.
Spring migration in the Fraser Estuary.
Migration is in full swing right now. Swallows are back at their nest sites, warblers
have started to sing in the forests, as the trees leaf up, and shorebirds are
heading through in flocks on their way to nesting grounds in the Arctic. Local
nature clubs have lots of walks and events. Check out Delta Naturalists' Society,
Nature Vancouver and BC Nature for more info, or better still, buy one of our guide
books (see below).
