4th Annual Bilingual (Spanish) Youth Winter Bird Count in Marin

This event has passed.

Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary and WildCare are co-hosting the fourth annual and only bicultural and bilingual (Spanish) Youth Winter Bird Count (YWBC) in California. This event will give aspiring young birders and outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to contribute to conservation while they learn in both Spanish and English – aided by WildCare’s bilingual naturalists and volunteer birders. In addition to reaching out to local families, WildCare’s and Richardson Bay Audubon’s YWBC is specifically designed to reach out and serve a bicultural and bilingual Hispanic audience. Participants will work in small teams with experienced birders. Students of all ages and their families are invited to participate in this fun and educational event.

Participants will meet at the Albert J. Boro Community Center in Pickleweed Park, San Rafael, CA. Participants will learn to use binoculars and scopes, record scientific data and, with the help of expert birders, become familiar with and identify a variety of local birds. Participants will also work with their teams to summarize their data and present it to the other participating teams as part of a celebration at the end of the event.

All bird data collected during the event will be entered into eBird, an internationally used database of bird sightings. Please register for this event.
