Event: Christmas Bird Count 4 Kids

Date: Sunday December 11, 2022

Time: 9:00 AM

Children, bring your parents and come join us to look for birds in Napa's local Parks on Sunday, December 11th. The fun begins at 9:00 a.m. at Connolly Ranch. Participants will sign in, review birding strategies, have a binocular training, and break into small teams. Teams will then travel with their parents by car to nearby parks throughout Napa. (NSAS Event)


Tammy Saunders, our Education Coordinator will lead this event.

Participants will hike with their team leaders, bird guide, checklist, and binoculars for 90 minutes of fun birding along a specific trail to record species and count birds. Children will experience the thrill of adding new birds to their list and keeping an accurate count of the birds they see. We will reconvene at Connolly Ranch at 11:30 to share observations, tabulate birds, enjoy lunch, and meet a special surprise guest! This half-day CBC4Kids is modeled after the traditional CBCs geared largely towards experienced birders, but is a less rigorous citizen science adventure, designed as a fun activity for kids aged 7-16. Parents and their youngsters will join experienced birding leaders in Celebrating Nature, the Fun of Birding, and the Value of Citizen Science.

What to bring: Children ages 7-16, a pair of binoculars, brown bag lunch, drinks. Suitable walking shoes and clothing for the weather. (Loaner binoculars available).
