Rocky Point Bird Observatory
Rocky Point Bird Observatory (RPBO) has been a proud member of the Canadian Migration Monitoring Network (CMMN) since 1994. Members of the CMMN track the migration of Canada’s birds in the spring and fall each year, adding to our knowledge of population trends, demographics, phenology, and other essential information about the species that pass through each location. This information is used by governments, environmental organizations, scientists and others to direct our collective actions and improve our ability to conserve Canada’s birds. Most CMMN members are small non-profit organizations that depend on large numbers of motivated volunteers. Your support is welcome and very much appreciated!
Lunch will be at My Chosen Cafe.
