The Kestrels Young Birders Club: Christmas Bird Count
Saturday, December 16,
8:00 am to 10:00 am
Are you a teenager or tween with an interest in birds and birding? Join a growing movement of young adults who are honing their wildlife observation skills, learning to recognize birds and their calls, and spending time outside building community with other young birders. This winter, we need sharp eyes and ears to help collect data for the Christmas Bird Count and the Great Backyard Bird Count at the Harris Center. We’ll also venture to the coast to search for Snowy Owls and other winter birds on the shores of Plum Island. Outings will be led by Harris Center Bird Conservation Director Phil Brown, conservation biologist Steven Lamonde, and Harris Center naturalists Nikko Gagnon and Susie Spikol. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow your skills, connect with other bird enthusiasts, and contribute to community science. This program is only open to kids ages 10 through 19.
8 to 10 a.m. at the Harris Center. Space is limited, and separate registration is required for each meeting.
For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie.
In an effort to create more belonging at the Harris Center, this outing has been designed with a specific group of people in mind. Learn more about our reasoning behind this on our Affinity Groups page.
