Shorebird Festival - Tofino

1084 Pacific Rim Highway
Tofino, British Columbia
V0R 2Z0

Daily from May 1, 2015 to May 3, 2015

Every year from late April through May, flocks of sandpipers, plovers, Whimbrels, and many other shorebirds pass through the Tofino area. Thousands stop here to feed and rest as they make their impressive journey from South and Central America northward to their Arctic breeding grounds. The Tofino Shorebird Festival celebrates this impressive annual migration with a series of educational birding activities throughout the region. We draw on local and visiting experts to participate in the festival, offering guest lectures, birding workshops and much more! This is a great opportunity to experience the largest wildlife migration in the region, learn about these impressive birds, and understand why Tofino is one of the very best places in western Canada for bird watching.

In 1858 word of gold rang out in the Fraser Canyon, starting a dramatic movement of people to what were largely unexplored regions of BC. Through interactive displays and rare artifacts, this fascinating exhibition will show you how everything changed forever with the gold rushes of the 1800's, as class and racial barriers were broken down and people seized the extraordinary opportunities that glittered before them. We delve into the passions roused by the alluring ore and tell this important chapter of history from a strikingly global perspective - the exhibition includes Allure of Gold from the Museo del Oro in Bogota, Colombia.
