Be part of one of the longest running citizen science projects – join us at the Christmas Bird Count for Kids! These bird counts started in 1900, making the Christmas Bird Count North America’s longest-running citizen science project. Counts happen in over 2000 localities throughout the Western Hemisphere.
At our event, we’ll have volunteer birders to host hikes where we’ll look and listen for birds, and record our observations. Kids can use a bingo sheet to keep track of what they see and hear. After the bird count we’ll head inside for songs and a puppet show with Glen Caradus of the Paddling Puppeteers! Before heading home, try feeding a Chickadee by hand at the bird feeders.
PFN membership and registration are required for this event as spaces are limited. Not a member yet? This is a great time to join. Child PFN memberships are only $10 per year.
Lug a mug for some hot chocolate. If you bring personal snacks, please make sure they are nut-free.
