Comox Valley Newcomers meet Monday

Social club for women new to the Valley will learn about birds through the expertise and photographs of birder Mike Yip.

Those of us fortunate to live the Comox Valley know the thrill of seeing trumpeter swans nesting in the wetlands and an amazing variety of birds that inhabit our wetlands.

The Comox Valley Newcomers Club, a social club for women new to the Valley, will learn more about birds in our area through the expertise and photographs of birder Mike Yip at their next meeting on Monday, Nov. 5.

Yip discovered birds and bird photography in 2003.

Since then he has produced a website Vancouver Island Birds; self-published three successful books on Vancouver Island Birds; contributed photos to environmental and educational projects around the world; and provided many PowerPoint presentations to groups all over the Island.

He is also a bimonthly newspaper columnist.

Mike’s goal is to increase public awareness of birds on Vancouver Island with the hope of fostering greater concern for nature and conservation.

The Comox Valley Newcomers welcomes new members. Meetings are held monthly at the Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

In addition to learning about our community, valley and island environments, the club is a social vehicle for creating new and lasting friendships.
