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 Ellen at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
