About the Event

Beginning to Bird is designed for ages 11 and up

Description: Ijams' Beginning to Bird program helps you take or re-take your first steps into the world of bird watching. This month, we will spend time with our familiar backyard birds. We will dive a bit into the lives of these birds we see everyday. We will also learn a bit about Project Feederwatch, and how feeding birds can help science.

Materials Participants Should Bring: Good walking shoes, water, binoculars (Ijams can provide binoculars as needed), journal, something to write with, and bird field guide if you have one.

Information to Note: This is a bird walk and we will go on trails with roots, rocks, and some elevation change. Arrive ready to walk approximately .75 to 1 miles.

Directions: This program meets outside the Ijams Visitor Center on the main plaza.

No walk-ins will be accepted. Every participant must have a ticket. Children under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Ijams awards full refunds for any cancellations up to 7 days before a program, or if Ijams cancels a program due to inclement weather. Refunds are not awarded for programs with fees of $5 or less for any reason. Tickets are non-transferable.
