3rd Annual Bilingual Youth Winter Bird Count in Marin
EVENT LOCATION: Albert J. Boro Community Center in Pickleweed Park, 50 Canal Street, San Rafael
Co-hosted by our partners PRBO, WildCare, and the Albert J. Boro Community Center in Pickleweed Park
Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary, Point Reyes Bird Observatory, and WildCare are co-hosting our third Youth Winter Bird Count (YWBC). This event will give aspiring young birders and outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to contribute to conservation while they learn in both Spanish and English aided by WildCare’s bilingual naturalists and volunteer birders.
- Participants will work in small teams with experienced birders.
- Bird data collected during the YWBC will ultimately be entered into eBird, an international database of bird sightings.
- Students of all ages and their families are invited to participate in this fun and educational event.
Participants will meet at the Albert J. Boro Community Center in Pickleweed Park, San Rafael, CA. Event space has generously been donated by the Community Center to support this program.
Participants will learn to use binoculars and scopes, record scientific data and, with the help of expert birders, become familiar with and identify a variety of local birds. Participants will also work with their teams to enter their data into a shared database and present it to the other participating teams as part of a celebration at the end of the event.
Registration forms also available in Spanish
