Wild About Wildlife: Let’s Flock About Birds

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The City of St. Albert and Sturgeon County are presenting another “Wild about Wildlife” virtual information session on Wednesday, April 24 from 7–8 p.m.!
Paul Grégoire, Senior Wildlife Biologist with Canadian Wildlife Services, will be our special guest to talk about important migratory birds in our community. Migratory bird season is from mid-April to August 31 and various species like songbirds, hawks, falcons, and waterfowl are returning to nearby areas for breeding. Nests can be found in trees, grass, or shrubs, and vegetation should not be disturbed until it is confirmed there are no nests present. Migratory birds enrich our lives and ecosystems in countless ways, so it is crucial to recognize the vital role these feathered travelers play in our environment.
Paul’s presentation will discuss Migratory Birds in Canada, the role of Canadian Wildlife Services, the Migratory Birds Convention Act and Regulations, advice on how to avoid harm to birds, and more. Paul has 30 plus years’ experience in the field and his work includes providing compliance advice to the public on the Migratory Birds Convention Act and the Federal Species at Risk Act. He is also an environmental assessment biologist and reviews various projects for their effects on wildlife and their habitat.
You can submit one question online, and we will allow time for Paul to answer them after the presentation.
