Christmas Bird Count for Kids

Christmas Bird Count for Kids

A winter activity for young people, CBC4K was begun in Sonoma County by Tom Rusert and Darren Peterie of Sonoma Nature.  Each year, CBC4K is held in Sonoma and in Petaluma.

The event is a half-day activity that mirrors the annual Christmas Bird Count held by Audubon chapters around the United States, identifying and counting birds and then gathering together to report results and compile data. The half-day CBC4K is always a popular and rewarding experiences for young conservationists.
