Monitoring Station Update


Our Station is closed to the public this season.

Due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the LSLBO station will be closed to the public and volunteers for the summer. We know that lab visits are  a summer highlight for many of you, but we know that you will understand the need to keep our staff and the public safe and healthy this summer.  Happy birding everyone and we hope to be able to share our world with you again in the future.  And remember that you can still check out our birding highlights on our new LSLBO Facebook page or our Weekly Banding updates from the lab.

Help us to keep our winter programs at the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation!

Centre scheduled to close to the public for the winter season.

The Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation is a vibrant year-round education, research and tourism centre for Lesser Slave Lake Provincial Park and the residents of the Slave Lake region.  However, due to recent budget cuts, Alberta Parks has decided to CLOSE the Boreal Centre facility for the winter season (October to March)

If you would like to keep this facility open for winter education programs, special events, and outdoor recreation opportunities for the families and students in our community, check out how you can help!
