TOPIC: BIRDS OF THE COWICHAN: TRENDS AND WHAT WE CAN DO LOCALLY

Many of you will know of David Aldcroft and his good work. He has had a passion natural history and birds for 50 years and has lived in the Cowichan Valley since 1981.

He has been a member of Natural History Society since that time. In Vancouver he was VP of the Vancouver Natural History Society and Chairman of the Fraser River Coalition. Besides working professionally in ornithology where he banded over 22,000 shorebirds for the Canadian Wildlife Service, Dave has been a builder, a commercial fisherman and as some of you may know through your kids he has driven school bus.

Each year Dave takes part in 2 breeding bird surveys one in the Cowichan and one at Whistler. He also does night hawk surveys, nocturnal owl surveys and he participates in our local Christmas bird count (this year was his 30th).

A number of people have asked about birds and the watershed. This should be a very interesting, informative and enjoyable evening.

I look forward to seeing you.
