Christmas Bird Count for Kids

Location: Tiffin Centre for Conservation, 8195 8th Line, Utopia
Christmas Bird Count for Kids is a fun, family-friendly citizen science event that provides families with the opportunity to learn about local bird populations in the winter.
Volunteers from Nature Barrie will show kids and their parents how to use binoculars and how to identify the birds they may encounter on the trails at the Tiffin Conservation Area.
After the short tutorial, families and their guides will head outside and walk the trails at Tiffin to identify and count birds.
The young citizen scientists can then share their sightings and observations over hot chocolate in the John L. Jose Environmental Learning Centre.
The data will then be submitted through an online reporting system to eBirds, where the information can be used in scientific research.
$5/per person covers parking and hot chocolate. Children under four are free.
