Bird Day 2020 with Tropical Audubon Society
Saturday, February 15 @ 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Nurture budding birders and junior naturalists at Tropical Audubon Society’s free Bird Day 2020 festival featuring an engaging afternoon of games, prizes, exploration and educational activities from noon to 4pm on their near-native Steinberg Nature Center grounds.
The mid-winter event also celebrates the annual migration of nearly 350 species of birds stopping to refuel and recharge in South Florida on their return from non-breeding grounds in the Caribbean, South America and Mexico to their nesting habitats in North America.
Participants can also join TAS Board member and Field Trip Coordinator Brian Rapoza for a presentation on the 2020 Great Backyard Bird Count, wherein birdwatchers of all ages count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are located.
Bird Day 2020 is the perfect venue for school ecology clubs, scout troops and young children seeking an outdoor adventure.
The Tropical Audubon Society hosts many fine programs for conservation-minded nature enthusiasts. The group meets at the historic Doc Thomas House at 5530 Sunset Drive. On-site parking available via 55th Avenue gate. Call 305-666-2842. http://tropicalaudubon.org/
