Spring is a wonderful time to learn about the birds of Cumberland. On this early morning walk we will explore the urban / forest interface between the Village and the Cumberland Forest and get to know the birds who make Cumberland their home.
Your guide is CCFS Director Jason Straka
Jason is an ecologist with the BC Conservation Data Centre. He has also been a BC park ranger living and working out of K'omoks Territory, and lived and worked on Treaty 8 Territory as an instructor at Aurora College, and Ecologist at Wood Buffalo National Park. Before getting to know a string of places starting with “Fort,” he was a grad student in the Starzomski lab at UVic, working on plant-pollinator interactions in alpine BC.
Jason has been an avid naturalist since endochondral ossification, and was keenly keying carabids as a volunteer at Trent University by the age of 12. He now has tomentose mandibular bristles and a deeply furrowed frons (mainly from the peer-review process). He and his partner live in Cumberland with a growing collection of bikes, orchids, and species rhodos.
