Winter Bird Count for Kids (Full)

Cardinal in winter

A Bird Studies Canada Christmas Bird Count for Kids event.

Introduce your kids (or yourself!) to the wonders of winter bird-watching with this special citizen science event for nature lovers of all ages and skill levels. Learn about the birds you can see at the Humber Arboretum and the work being done by Bird Studies Canada, get tips on bird-watching tools and techniques, and - most importantly - get outside and see who your group can spot on the Arboretum grounds and at the feeders in our new bird-friendly garden.

Bring binoculars and bird guides if you have them, but if not, don't worry! We'll have lots of loaners on hand.

When: Saturday December 10 from 9:30 a.m. to to 12:30 p.m.

Where: Humber Arboretum (At the back of the Humber College North Campus, 205 Humber College Blvd., Toronto - Directions)

Thank you for your interest - this event is now FULL. Please keep an eye here or on Facebook for more upcoming nature events for families - and have a look at our Winter and March Break Nature Day Camps.
