The Burnaby Lake Park Association is still planning to hold the 2017 Nest Box servicing work parties but as you have noticed the weather has not cooperated with us so far this year. The long range forecast calls for a very cold week capped with snow and rain on the weekend.
The area around the lake is treacherous with many of the nest boxes inaccessible for us to safely hold the work parties so were are:
- January 15 (10 am – 1 pm) at the Rowing Pavilion – POSTPONED – Our volunteer coordinator will be in contact with you if you are on the mailing list when we have a new date set
- January 22 (10 am – 1 pm) at the Nature House (at Piper Street Entrance) – GOING AHEAD AS SCHEDULED – This will depend on the accessibility of the boxes out on the marshy area and, of course, the weather! We may change the location if it becomes necessary.
Please stay tuned for any further updates.
Contact our volunteer coordinator directly by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and get added to the email list; a message will be sent out once we have plans finalized.
