2018 Brant Wildlife Festival

Thanks to the many volunteers and organizations that helped with the Brant Wildlife Festival on Vancouver Island.

The festival celebrated nature, particularly the amazing migration of Brant geese as they rest and feed on the shores of Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Events ranged from wildlife viewing to learning how to identify birds as well as kids nature camps and a bioblitz. The festival was made possible by volunteer tour leaders, especially the Arrowsmith Naturalists, Friends of French Creek, Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours, Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region Research Institute, Qualicum Beach Streamkeepers, and VIU Deep Bay Marine Field Station.

The Nature Trust of BC coordinated the festival with sponsorship from the City of Parksville, Town of Qualicum Beach and the Mid Island Co-op.
