Brant Wildlife Festival

The 2019 Festival will occur from March 23 to April 7, 2019.


The festival celebrates nature, particularly the amazing migration of Brant geese as they rest and feed on the shores of Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Events will range from wildlife viewing to learning how to identify birds as well as kids nature camps and a bioblitz. The festival is 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 coordinates the festival with sponsorship from the City of Parksville, Town of Qualicum Beach and the Mid Island Co-op.
