Given the Brent community's extensive experience with this event, we would really appreciate help from Brent parents to staff the event this year. Please sign up for a short shift helping out.
Kids from 1st-5th grades will go on offsite birdwalks at Haines Point, Kennilworth Aquatic Gardens, Kingman Island, or the National Arboretum. Walks will be led by local and nationally recognized birdexperts. Families of 1st-5th graders should go to JO Wilson Elementary between 9-9:30 am on Saturday to sign in.
Kids in PreK and Kindergarten will meet at JO Wilson Elementary at 10:30 am for onsite bird arts and crafts and a schoolyard birdwalk. The Earth Consevation Corps will have an amazing display of birds of prey, and the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center will be doing a birdbanding demonstration.
The event is open to all families (and family members) from Ward 6 and is free of charge.
Loaner binoculars and field guides will be available to all participants, but please bring your own if you have them.
If you will be attending or if you have any questions, please email Mike Mangiaracina at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
