Brant Wildlife Festival

Pacific Black Brant

The 2021 Brant Wildlife Festival is pivoting to ensure the safety of participants due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The festival celebrates nature, particularly Brant geese as they rest and feed on the shores of Parksville and Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

For 16 years the Brant Wildlife Festival was spearheaded by the Mid Island Wildlife Watch Society (if you would like to know more about the history of the festival, click here). Over time, the society was challenged to secure the financial and human resources necessary to organize and operate the festival. In June 2006, the members dissolved the society and transferred the assets to The Nature Trust of British Columbia.

The Nature Trust of British Columbia works with local community groups and volunteers to present this festival.

The Nature Trust of BC is a non-profit land conservation organization. Since 1971, The Nature Trust has been dedicated to conserving and managing ecologically significant land across the province, including many on Vancouver Island. For more information, visit www.naturetrust.bc.ca
