Event description

Description

Please meet at 9 am at the foot of 72nd St at the Boundary Bay Dyke.

Come look for winter birds like Common Redpolls, American Tree Sparrows, Short-eared Owls and Rough-legged Hawks and other great birds at our CBC4Kids in Delta. The youth will be led by an experienced birder in a team setting. Each team will conduct a bird survey and record the number of bird species and individuals seen. All data we collect from our count will be sent to Ebird and Bird Studies Canada to aid in studies for bird conservation.

The Christmas Bird Count for Kids (CBC4Kids), based on the traditional Christmas Bird Count, is a fun winter birdwatching event that engages youth in real Citizen Science. The goal is to promote nature appreciation, ecological literacy, build bird ID and monitoring skills, and environmental stewardship in the next generation of naturalists.

Ages 12-18 are welcome.
