Birding proves popular in Langley

Langley Field Naturalists have released updated and improved brochure

Birding is proving so popular that the Langley Field Naturalists have released an updated and improved Birds of Langley brochure.

This colourful brochure features 54 birds that can all be seen locally, includingbarn owls, bald eagles, finches and blue jays.

The first brochures were made last year and have helped foster a love and appreciation of nature in young and old and a love of birding, too, said Langley Field Naturalist John Gordon, a professional photographer who has a blog called The Canadian Warbler

The LFN is currently putting together a new brochure focused on butterflies that can be found in Langley.

The birding brochure was made possible because of grants received from BC Nature, the BC Naturalists Foundation, the City of Langley and VanCity. The brochure is appropriate for every age and level of expertise in birding.

And the best part of birding is it can be done anywhere and it doesn’t require equipment.

The LFN have a focus on youth and would like to distribute the brochures to Langley schools. In addition, the brochures will be available at local libraries, recreation centres and at community events. To request copies of the brochure, contact the club by email at langleyfieldnaturalists@shaw.ca. or contact Lilianne Fuller at 604-533-0638.
