The Beaverhill Natural Area and trails remain open to the public 24/7. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic however, the BBO is not accepting volunteers at this time and we will not be banding birds until further notice. We ask that visitors respectfully stay outside of our buildings, as we are happy to talk to visitors in our clearing and anywhere in the great outdoors!
Using our interactive eBird map, you can find out what birds are hanging around the BBO based on sightings from other birders. You can also contribute to this resource by entering your sightings directly to eBird!Learn More
This Important Bird Area used to be one of the largest bodies of water in Alberta. What happened to this massive feature on the landscape? What does it look like today? Are there still birds using this habitat? Find out here.Learn More
The BBO has established an Endowment Fund to help secure future research efforts!
As a non-profit, BBO relies on Grants, Casinos and Donations to continue the work we do. None of which can be counted on from year to year. Our intention, by creating this Endowment Fund with the Edmonton Community Foundation, is to eventually provide lifelong support to our organization.
