Bird count organizers looking for volunteers

Anyone with a birding background or just an appreciation of our feathered friends is invited to participate in the Nanaimo Christmas Bird Count Dec. 30.

The count dates back more than 40 years in the Harbour City and more than 100 years across North America and is the longest running citizen survey in the world.

Volunteers provide critical data on population trends and how specific bird populations change over the years.

To volunteer, please contact Ryan Cathers at 250-714-3947 or ryancathers@yahoo.com.
