Register for the Vancouver Christmas Bird Count 4 Kids here
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. 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!
