More about the CBC for Kids Program below:
The Christmas Bird Count for Kids is a winter bird count for young birders.
The adventure begins with an indoor session including demonstrations and activities to practice using binoculars, learn about birds and how to identify them.
Then we head outdoors!
Each participant (and accompanying parent) will be part of a small birding team, led by an experienced birder, and will conduct a 1-1.5 hour survey in Stanley Park recording the number of bird species and individuals seen.
After the survey, all teams will re-group for lunch (bring your own) and we’ll tally up the bird numbers and compare sightings!
Location: Stanley Park
Date: Saturday December 7th, 2012 9:30 pm-1:30 pm
