Christmas Bird Count for Kids

The National Audubon Society's Christmas Bird Count is the longest running citizen science project in the nation (more history here). Now, kids can get in on the fun and contribute data used to monitor and protect birds!

Tracy Aviary's CBC4Kids group is responsible for surveying Liberty Park, and bird experts from Tracy Aviary and Great Salt Lake Audubon will be on hand to help kids identify and count birds.

Christmas Bird Count for Little Chicks

Have a budding birder who's a little young for bird surveys? Designed for ages 7 and younger, our CBC for Little Chicks will run simultaneously with the CBC4Kids. Our educators will lead a variety of short activities, including a storytime, crafts, and a scavenger hunt, so that you can come and go as you please.

CBC4Kids: 9:00am - 1:00pm
