Unfortunately, birding sessions are on hiatus for the time being due to the crisis. The sessions began with a presentation on seasonal bird life and proceed to identification, watching and sketching activities
in the elm. The events ended with a pine cone bird feeder making activity. Scouts, come work on bird watching merit badges.
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 once things return to normal, 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.
