Exciting news from The BC Bird Trail, which has recently launched the BC Bird Trail Mobile Experience—a free tool to help birdwatchers of all levels discover the best birding hotspots in B.C! Since the onset of the pandemic, B.C. has seen a dramatic rise in birdwatching—it’s become an activity that attracts new enthusiasts each year, even people who’ve never thought of themselves as a “birder”. Many are realizing that birdwatching is not only fun and accessible as an activity, but it’s also a great, meditative way to get out in nature.
Now available for download via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, The BC Bird Trail Mobile Experience arrives at the peak of the fall birding season, offering a great companion to any birdwatching adventure. Here’s how you can use this app for your next adventure:
- Explore self-guided itineraries of communities throughout all regional Bird Trails (Central Vancouver Island, Columbia Valley, Fraser Valley, Sea to Sky, and South Fraser to start) and two standalone Outposts (Langford and Osoyoos) throughout British Columbia
- Track your birding progress as you make stops through any of the self-guided itineraries
- Plan trips in advance based on curated recommendations by the experts at The BC Bird Trail and Destination BC
- Optionally, find recommended local attractions, restaurants, and more, curated by local experts.
The launch of this mobile experience compliments the recent expansion of The BC Bird Trail earlier this fall, which includes the brand new Sea to Sky Bird Trail spanning the communities of Squamish and Whistler, as well as two new independent Bird Trail Outposts in Langford and Osoyoos.
