Please join us for the 1st annual

Christmas Bird Count for Kids

Sunday | Dec. 11 | 8:30–11:30 AM

(Rain date: Sunday, Dec. 18)


Long Point Wildlife Refuge

                                                  (Winter entrance off Deep Bottom Rd.)

                                        Kids ages 8 and up, and parents, are welcome to this free event!

 We’ll have binoculars to loan to all participants. The morning will begin with some instruction on using binoculars and spotting scopes, then we will split into groups led by local birders to locate, observe, and identify birds around the refuge. At 11 am, we’ll meet back at the visitor’s center for a tally while we enjoy hot drinks and snacks!

We will offer some bird-focused activities at the visitor’s center for children younger than 8, so feel free to bring your entire brood.

Please PRE-REGISTER by contacting or calling 508.693.7662 (registration closes Friday, Dec. 9). We will provide more details with registration.
