Virtual Christmas Bird Count for Kids - a conservation effort for kids who love birds
We are so grateful to be hosting the event in partnership with the Toronto Ornithological Club!This event is for kids who love birds, and their parents too! The Christmas Bird Count is a long-standing community science project that started on Christmas Day 1900 when ornithologist Frank M. Chapman, proposed counting birds instead of hunting them.
Legendary birder, Mark Peck, will teach us how to identify some of the birds that stick around for the winter and how to collect data to help with bird conservation efforts.
Thank you to the High Park Western Beaches for generously funding this event.
