Kids’ Autumn Equinox Bird Count in the Presidio
Presidio Kids Heron

Saturday, September 24th
10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Meet at Baker Beach picnic area

Did you know that the Presidio is a birding hotspot in the Bay Area? After a short “binocular bootcamp and birding basics” kids and their families will join experienced birders in teams on different routes throughout the Presidio. After an easy 2 hour walk counting observed bird life, groups will return to Baker Beach to tally their numbers during lunch. The day will be topped off with presentations of the day’s numbers by kids!
