Young Birders' Club - A birding hike series, just for kids!


Young Birders' Club is into its second season at TTP!


The Young Birders' Club is an opportunity for youth, aged 9-12, to go on introductory birding hikes specifically geared for young people. Our goal is to look for birds at Tommy Thompson Park through the fall migration season, and to develop our birding skills. In addition to hiking, we'll enjoy other age-appropriate activities to complement the birding. The club will meet on five occasions, starting August 30th, and with every meeting, our bird observation and identification skills will improve. On our fifth and final meeting this season, families are invited to come along on our birding hike to learn from our Young Birders

Young Birders will:



  • Learn how to use binoculars



  • Learn how to spot and identify birds



  • Visit the Bird Research Station



  • Meet other youth interested in birding


  • **Please note that meetings will involve a significant amount of walking.**

    Binoculars and field guides are provided for the meetings.
    Delivered by a certified teacher.

    Sunday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

    We will be cycling for two of the meetings. Participants are to bring their own bicycles and helmets.
