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: jclodato@yahoo.com.  Or contact Don at: drldc2@gmail.com
