Love birds? Have kids?

This Saturday, June 11th, join other families in the 1st Annual Children’s Summer Solstice Bird Count in the Presidio. It sounds like the prefect blend of family time, outdoor time, and science & nature fun.

There will be a short “binocular bootcamp and birding basics”, so if you or anyone in the family don’t have any birding experience, don’t worry! There will also be experienced birders to help make the experience even more rewarding. If you haven’t seen a birder in action, it is a sight to see. I know. My parents are avid birders and have their life lists and all of that good stuff. My mom never goes anywhere without her binoculars (seriously! we’re always loosing her because she’s stopped to look at a bird).

Anywho. This event should be tons of fun. An easy two hour walk with your kids through the beautiful Presidio observing and counting bird life, topped off with presentations of the day’s numbers by kids – what could be a better way to spend a Saturday?

For more information, check out their flier. This event is free and co-sponsored by the Presidio Trust and the Golden Gate Audubon Society.
