Christmas Bird Count for Kids 2024
The Christmas Bird Count for Kids (CBC4Kids) is a fun winter birdwatching event based on the traditional Christmas Bird Count. Participants build bird identification and monitoring skills while contributing to a real Community Science initiative! The goal is to promote nature appreciation, ecological literacy, and environmental stewardship in the next generation of naturalists.
Bird Studies Canada has been the proud Canadian partner in the Christmas Bird Counts for Kids program since 2010.
