Young Naturalists

All young people are welcome to participate in our monthly meetings and field trips.

For many years we have been pleased to assist the PEI Science Fair with provision of prizes. Good luck to all participants in local school fairs and the provincial fair this year !

We are pleased to see the formation of the UPEI Field Naturalists Society – “A society created to connect, organize and involve UPEI students interested in the natural history of Prince Edward Island.” Check out their Facebook page.

What to do before the big day: Look at bird pictures and practice using your binoculars by looking at particular things in your yard.

How to get there: Turn into Reeve’s Estates off the TCH, and turn right on McIntosh Dr. Keep straight until you reach a parking lot at the Fullerton’s trail entrance.

26 January 2015 – Enthusiastic young birders in Christmas Bird Count for Kids (“CBC4Kids”) events across the country identified and counted a grand total of 111 species in the 2014-15 count. Thirty-three CBC4Kids events were held throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland, with seven new counts joining the fun!
Congratulations and many thanks to all the organizations, event coordinators, hosts, and volunteers who ran CBC4Kids events, and to all the families and young birders who eagerly participated! To explore locations that held CBC4Kids events, and view eBird checklists from some counts, visit the CBC4Kids map. You can also connect with count organizers through the CBC4Kids Facebook group.
