With the current situation with Covid-19, we are still going ahead with the May Species Count. This activity does not involve people congregating. People who are participating will be encouraged to continue with social distancing. This is a great way to get out of the house and still be safe. Once you have filled out the tally sheet you can either scan and email it to judy.boyd@shaw.ca or call Judy at 403-358-1098 to give your tally to Judy over the phone. If you are walking on the trails, make sure you keep yourself at a safe distance from other people.

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