The Beaverhill Bird Observatory

Beaverhill Lake is found in an geomorphic area of "knob and kettle" topography approximately 60 km east of Edmonton, Alberta. In 1997 Beaverhill Lake was identified as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance because of the large numbers of shorebirds and waterfowl that use the area as a stop-over site during migrations.Since 1984, the Beaverhill Bird Observatory (BBO) has been interested and active in the area to monitor bird migrations and populations. The bird banding laboratory was built in 1986 and has involved many staff and volunteers in bird banding research projects. The BBO is also involved in many other projects including maintaining and monitoring Tree Swallow boxes, participating in the Alberta Raptor Monitoring Program, and conducting Nocturnal Owl Surveys. BBO has also branched out to study amphibians and insect populations in and around the natural area, and also takes part in organized butterfly and dragonfly counts. SCIP internships will focus on providing students with research and environmental education experiences at the Beaverhill Bird Observatory.
