BCIT News reports on BLPA Nest Box Program

On Sunday, January 21, a hardy group of volunteers braved the elements and headed out around Burnaby Lake for our annual nest box servicing. This year, BCIT News Journalism student Tanushree Pillai was there to capture the day`s activities.

Tanu also tweeted details of the process.

We still have more boxes around the Lake to service. Once all of them are completed, we hope to have results of our data collections by March 2018.

Thanks Tanushree for coming out and to our fantastic volunteers.

GREEN means GO!

And the green we are starting to see around Burnaby Lake Regional Park!

With the recent rains and warmer temperatures, the trail conditions are much better but there are some still some icy and soggy bits. Please remember to dress for the conditions including waterproof boots (knee high is really good!) and bring your waders if you have them.
Meet at the rowing Pavilion, where we’ll give out further instructions and divide into working groups.

See you tomorrow!

We have had a look at the trails around the Land and after consulting with park operations, determined they are not safe to hold the nest box program on the 22nd. We have decided to wait until next month when the we’re pretty sure we’ll be back to our normal conditions.

New date: Β Saturday, February 18, 10 am to 1 pm, Meet at the Rowing Pavilion.

Please RSVP to to be added to the list so we can keep you up to date on any weather related changes.
