May Species Count

We invite you to help us document animals and flowering plants in Central Alberta. You can count in your own backyard, in a nearby park or natural area, or even by driving the back-roads. We are interested in everything, from insects and spiders to amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

Usually held on the last weekend in May between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. either Saturday, Sunday or both. Please check Coming Events or the May Newsletter for any changes.

If counting both days, please count in different locations using separate tally sheets.

This map shows the different zones you can count in. Let Judy know exactly where you are counting with an address or name of area. You can view the bird count zone maps here.

Contact Judy Boyd 403-358-1098 if participating and to indicate where you are counting so there are no duplication of counts. See zones.
