The 27th International Ornithological Congress will be held at the Convention Centre in Vancouver August 19 – 26, 2018. This meeting for bird scientists has been held every four years since 1884. Organizers are expecting more than 2000 scientists to come from more than 100 countries. This gathering could interest birders and people involved in citizen science projects around birds.
One of the field trips will be a day trip to Squamish.
