The BC Bird Trail has added several locations in the province as part of its third season of inspiring people to explore birdwatching, including a new station in Osoyoos.
The seasonal campaign launches every fall. This year, an Osoyoos Bird Trail outpost has been opened.
"The expansion of The BC Bird Trail provides locals and travellers, as well as budding and seasoned birders alike, with a free, self-guided itinerary and resource to view and identify some of the most spectacular birds nature has to offer across five regions of British Columbia," the organization explained in a news release Thursday.
"From Western Meadowlarks, Bald Eagles, and the arrival of the Snow Geese in the fall and winter to countless songbirds, swallows and warbler species in the spring and summer, nature enthusiasts of all levels can utilize the newly expanded BC Bird Trail to easily explore birding, conservation, and community across our province."
The pandemic in 2020 brought about a rise in people seeking outdoor activities, like birdwatching. The BC Bird Trail was developed to provide information for amateur and expert birdwatchers alike, looking to get the most out of their time outdoors.
Funding for the program is provided by Destination BC, Birds Canada, Indigenous Tourism BC, Tourism Richmond, and more than a dozen additional tourism partners throughout the province.
