Leslie Spit Bird Conservation

A local family is raising funds to support research and conservation initiatives at Leslie Spit’s hidden gem – the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station. To find out more please visit:

From Andrew Macdonald:
For several years my wife Sally and I, along with our kids – now 6 and 8, have fundraised for an event called the Great Canadian Birdathon. 75% of the money we raise goes to a hidden gem – the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station, and 25% to Bird Studies Canada. This year we set a Big Goal of $7500. We’re well over $5000, but hoping for a boost as we enter the final stretch.
