Submitted. Swallow populations in Canada have decreased over the past 40 years, with Barn and Bank Swallows experiencing the greatest decline. Both these species are listed as Threatened in Canada and there’s a lack of detailed information on their abundance and distribution in British Columbia, in addition to Cliff Swallows.

You’re invited to a presentation to hear more about the ecology of these species, the threats they face, and what is being done to address their declines. After the presentation they’ll be an opportunity to ask questions, provide information on where you’ve seen these species, and sign up for training to help inventory swallows this summer in the Fraser Valley.
This presentation is being given by the BC Swallow Conservation Project, in collaboration with the Chilliwack Field Naturalists
For more information about the presentation or upcoming training, please contact Greg Ferguson or Fernando Selles.
Presentation Location and Time: Chilliwack Neighbourhood Learning Centre, Chilliwack Secondary School, Room 1007, 46361 Yale Road, Thursday April 9th, 7:00 to 8:30pm
