A message from the Port Moody Squadron:

One of our long term hardworking members, Lawrence Schmidt, is assisting Birds Canada organizer, Remi Torrenta, to arrange a bird count on Saturday October 29 in Indian Rm and Howe Sound area. 
We are looking for a few more volunteer boats to take 3-4  “birder” guests on their vessel to do a bird count in the English Bay and Inner Harbour areas. 
We are really hoping your squadron might be able to help out with this. 
We are also hoping to get some funding to help pay for the fuel.
Could you possibly reach out to your members to ask if they could assist in this project. 
They can contact myself or Lawrence directly. (Lawrence)
Thank you so much.
