About

This is a community site for the people of Bird River, Still Cove, Poplar Bay and Auglen Park Manitoba Canada. This site is the where to go for all things in the area. The site is inspired by the community spirit of the Latvian settlement that arrived to Bird River at the turn of the 20th century. The goal is to be a centre for communications and information for current; permanent residents, cottage owners, community businesses, visiting friends and friends from a neighboring community from the Bird River area. Community members can stay in touch with your friends no matter where you are.

This site was launched in February, 2012 by area vegetable grower Chuck Leibert (Emma’s Garden) who now functions as the Chief Administrator for the site.  (admin@birdriver.ca)

If you are a property owner in the area please email the administrator for an invitation to the community commons. The Commons is where you have many tools to meet, share, co-ordinate, plan and discuss topics you think are important to your community’s health, our well being, and lifestyle. Start a community project, co-ordinate a grocery run, ask for assistance, let others know how the fish are biting, when the berries or mushrooms are out or how the wild game are doing this year. Unlike Facebook, the information on this site will just remain in the community.

If you are a community business, provide a service, or have a talent you are willing to share, please contact the site so we may publish a splash page for you so that all know what is available to our community. There is no charge for this service, so don’t be shy.
