Presidio Kids Heron

Sunday, April 1st, 2012
10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Meet at El Polín Spring

Did you know that the Presidio is a birding hotspot in the Bay Area? After a short “binocular bootcamp and birding basics” kids (ages 6 and up) 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 El Polín Spring to tally their numbers during lunch. The day will be topped off with presentations of the day’s numbers by kids!
