Christmas Bird Count for Kids!

The Christmas Bird Count for Kids is a fun winter birdwatching event for kids and families. Join us to learn about birds, connect with young naturalists, and become a Citizen Scientist!

NatureKids BC has a proud tradition of participating in this event  initiative for the past 8 years.  Our clubs organize more bird counts for CBC4Kids than any other organization in North America! We can’t wait to be involved again.

We’ll be holding our Salmon Arm event on December 15.

Location: Salmon Arm Bay foreshore (meet at outhouse west end, near CSRD)
Mentor: Geoff Styles
Notes: Please dress warmly. Bring binoculars if you have. We will try to borrow some too. Bird book if you have. Keen interest to look for birds and have fun exploring. If you have a thermos bring some hot chocolate or tea whichever you prefer. Might be nice to have something warm afterwards.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
