Realizing a vision for conservation through collaboration

ANNUAL REPORT: 2016-2017


Bobolinks breed in small populations throughout BC's Southern Interior in moist hayfields in the valley bottoms. Much of the Bobolink's habitat is privately owned, so landowners are encouraged to assist with the continued survival of this bird by delaying haycutting until after the bird's nesting season in mid-July.
