Young Birders

April 27, May 4, May 18

Offsite:

Calling Young Birders for this one-of-a-kind Learning Opportunity!

This spring, your child can learn birding techniques and have fun with other kids who share a similar passion for birds. Young birders ages 10-16 will have the chance to learn from two expert birders, including National Aviary Ornithologist Bob Mulvihill, on three Saturday morning bird walks in local parks! Participants will receive one-on-one instruction on:

  • how to spot and identify birds
  • how to adjust and use binoculars
  • how to keep field notes and submit their findings via the online eBird database maintatined by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

The three birding sessions will be held (rain or shine) on April 27, May 4, May 18 

Locations: Wingfield Pines (April 27), Audubon Greenway (May 4), and Irwin Run (May 18).

All outings will begin promptly at 7:30 AM; parents can pick their children up at the drop off site at 9:30 AM. 

Cost for all three sessions is $75 per person.  Space is very limited (just 30 young birders can attend!).  To register, contact Kate Campbell at 412-258-9439 or education.programs@aviary.org.
