About the Author
In 2018, Nature Vancouver (previously known as Vancouver Natural History Society) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The founding goals of the VNHS were to enjoy, study and protect nature in Vancouver and throughout BC as well as to provide education for its members and the public. Activities include habitat restoration, the Christmas Bird Count, Raptor Survey, Coast Bird Survey and the Wildlife Tree Stewardship program. Many of the approximate 750 Nature Vancouver members participated in the creation of Parks and Nature Places Around Vancouver, The Birder's Guide to Vancouver and the Lower Mainland (Revised and Expanded Edition) and Wilderness on the Doorstep: Discovering Nature in Stanley Park.
