The Jr. Birder program was established to engage our youth with a rewarding activity and help young people connect with nature by learning birdwatching skills, but more importantly to gain a better knowledge and appreciation of the world around them.
The program is open to all interested boys and girls, ages 8-18. The group meets 4-6 times each year for a hike at a local birding hotspot. Hikes are usually 1-2 hours long. Binoculars are available for use on each hike. Membership is free!
If interested in joining, contact Jim at: or at 812-573-1391. Or contact Don at:

Jr. Birder Field Trips for 2021
Due to the continuing incidence of coronavirus in our area, the Jr. Birders are not able to schedule any group outings at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and will post any outings on this web page and the Jr. Birders Facebook page. Hopefully, we will be able to resume normal activities soon.
Great Backyard Bird Count 2021
24th Annual GBBC
The Great Backyard Bird count (GBBC) is scheduled to run from Friday, February 12 through Monday, February 15 and details on how to participate can be found at birdcount.org. So, all you need to do is find some time to sit and count birds in your backyard during the count period. You can count for as little as 15 minutes or as long as you would like. You can count on any or all days during the count period. Just make sure your counts include the number of species you see and the number of individuals of each species you record.
