For the Birds with special guests Jacques Sirois, Gary Searing and Kelly Fretwell
Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting opportunity to learn about our local ecosystem and the birds within it. Our speakers this evening will be Jacque Sirois from Victoria Harbour Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Gary Searing from Raptor conservation and management at the Vancouver International Airport, and Kelly Fretwell from BC Parks iNaturalist Project!
Everyone is welcome to attend! The doors will open at 6:30pm for socializing over coffee and dessert. The presentation will begin at 7. There will be a short time for questions after each speaker, and if time permits after the readings we’ll open up the floor for dialogue with all three guests.
Please visit our Facebook page for additional information on our guest speakers, and to share the invitation with friends!
Tickets are $20. Purchase your tickets here, or arrive early to purchase your ticket at the door.
This is a non-partisan event, hosted by the BC Green Party Riding Association in Saanich North and the Islands.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
