|The Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation was created through a partnership between the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory and Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation.
The centre provides an in-depth look at birds and their vital relationship to the boreal forest. Multi-faceted, interactive displays and innovative education programs educate and entertain visitors of all ages. Our LEED standard "Gold" building demonstrates the possibilities for reducing water, electricity and fossil fuel as well as being environmentally friendly in all aspects of construction.
The real stars of the BCBC are the neo-tropical migrants that pass through the area and blanket the boreal forest breeding grounds. These feathered guests are the reason for the existence of the BCBC and the focal point for the research, monitoring and education programs.
