Wanted: Youth for Fun, Free Bird Competition

Explore the outdoors, see birds and other wildlife, compete for fun and enjoy free food: What’s not to like about Georgia’s Youth Birding Competition?

The 15th annual event is April 24–25, and youth from kindergarten to high school seniors are invited to join the adventure. No birding experience is necessary.

Coordinator and Georgia DNR wildlife biologist Tim Keyes is excited about the opportunity to introduce birds to youth and encourage experienced birders as they hone their skills.

“From 7-year-olds who can identify 20 bird species to teens who can identify 160, this program offers a fun opportunity to spend a day outdoors finding birds as part of a friendly competition, complete with T-shirts, a banquet and prizes.”

Register by March 31.
