What VARC does:
The Vancouver Avian Research Centre (VARC) is a Registered Canadian Charity dedicated to wild bird research, conservation and education. It conducts bird monitoring and banding and provides public outreach to raise awareness of environmental issues particularly as they relate to breeding and migratory birds.
In support of VARC’s mandate to raise awareness of environmental issues, VARC encourages the involvement of college and university students in a number of ways:
- Site visits (see visitor programs)
- Enrollment in our Bird Monitoring and Banding or Bird ID Workshops
- Utilization of our data and field station for research projects (contact VARC directly)
Full details of site visits and our visitor programs can be found by clicking on the Visitor Programs link.
