30 Years of Impact: Celebrating Rocky Point Bird Observatory’s Milestone Anniversary

2024 marks the 30th anniversary of Rocky Point Bird Observatory. Since 1994, RPBO has been a member of the Canadian Migration Monitoring Network (CMMN), gathering information on bird demographics and population trends over southern Vancouver Island and beyond.

This 30th Anniversary is a time for reflection and gratitude. We are sincerely thankful for the loyalty and service of our volunteers, members, and staff and the generous support of our donors and grantors. Your efforts ensure our programs run efficiently and allow us to confidently look to the future. Our greatest asset is our people. Without their contributions, none of our accomplishments would have been possible.
