Mark your calendars for January 6 and 7, the first weekend of 2018! Please join the Effie Yeaw Nature Center (EYNC) and Sacramento Audubon Society in the Sixth Annual Kids’ Christmas Bird Count.
These family Bird Counts provide an exciting opportunity for kids, young adults and their families to be outside looking at birds and enjoying nature. Participants will be joining citizen scientists all over the world and will gain practice finding, identifying and counting all the birds they see. Day 1 for the younger birders aged 6 to 10 will be January 6 from 9-Noon and will be followed by a companionable lunch with other birder families at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.
This year our older birders 10 years and up and their families will meet at Wm. Pond Park at 9 am for our count. This will occur on Sunday, January 7 with faster paced birding for more experienced young people. At noon we will assemble at a nearby pizza restaurant to compile our results, share exciting moments of the day and eat.
Space is limited for both days so children must be pre-registered to attend. Registration is first come, first served and opens on December 1, 2017. To register go to http://effieyeaw.eventbrite.com.”
