Birding sessions will be on hiatus for the rest of the winter, but youth group leaders can schedule appointments for the spring (April +) on weekdays from 3:30-4:30, and Saturdays from 12:00-4:00. The sessions begin
with a presentation on seasonal bird life and proceed to identification, watching and sketching activities in the elm. The events end with a pine cone bird feeder making activity. Scouts, come work on bird watching merit
If you're the leader of a local youth group who would like to inquire about making an appointment to visit the tree house for birding purposes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In your inquiry, please include your group's name, normal meeting location, contact information for adult leaders, the approximate number of child birders you'd like
to bring to the tree house, session dates that might work for your group, and other information you consider relevant. Group leaders should plan to make a brief visit to the alley without their group before their birders visit. The visit
will help familiarize leaders with the fort's safety features and proper supervision of birders. Leaders of youth groups of economically disadvantaged children, who may never have visited a tree house before, are encouraged to contact the
family to arrange a visit.
The bird watching sessions are free to qualified youth groups properly supervised by one or more adult leaders. Happy urban birding for Ward 6 kids.
