Bird School for Young Birders
CBEC has scheduled a Bird School for children 6-10 years old. The sessions will be both indoors and in the field, so dressing for the weather is important. The Bird School is limited to 10 children for maximum opportunities of seeing birds and individual attention to the field work, crafts and activities. If your child is interested in birds, this is an ideal experience to increase their curiosity, learn about birds and have fun engaging in the activities. CBEC will provide binoculars, bird guides, journals and any equipment and materials needed in the classes. Professional bird instructors will work with the children. The cost is $125 for members and $150 for non-members. It is required that children attend all three days for cumulative benefit. If interested email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and/or questions.
