Kids Can Learn to Be Citizen Scientists at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
Titusville: On Saturday, January 14th, 2017 kids and families will have the chance to become citizen scientists by taking part in an old tradition with a new twist, the 2017 Christmas Bird Count for Kids (CBC4K).
This special event will be held at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center from 9am-12pm. A binocular boot camp will kick-off the event, after which kids will divide into teams and head out into the field with volunteer experts to count and record the species of birds they locate. Teams will meet back at the visitor center after the count for snacks and hot chocolate and to tally their results.
The CBC4K is designed as a way for families to have fun outdoors and learn more about local birds. Kids of all birding abilities are encouraged to participate. All participants should come dressed for spending time outdoors. Bring your own binoculars or borrow some from the Refuge. Parents must accompany their children..
For more information, please contact the Refuge Visitor Center at 321-861-0669.
