Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is delighted to present two Nature Explorers events in December. Children ages five to ten are invited to take part in Audubon’s fun annual Christmas Bird Count. The two Saturday events will take place from 9:00 am to 11:00 am with one in Sarasota County on December 11 at the Celery Fields located at 6893 Palmer Blvd, Sarasota, 34240 and one in Manatee County on December 18 at Felts Audubon Preserve located at 4600 24th Ave E, Palmetto, 34221.

Audubon’s annual Christmas Bird Count occurs each year from December 14 to January 5. Conservation Foundation is excited to introduce children to this engaging citizen science tradition. Participants will learn more about the habitats our local lands provide to various bird species, then use their powers of observation to help scientists across the country understand the migratory patterns of different birds. “Our Nature Explorers program furthers our commitment to youth education and community engagement,” says Christine P. Johnson, president of Conservation Foundation. “We hope our Nature Explorers’ events connect more kids to nature and create memorable experiences that lead to a lifelong love of the great outdoors.”

Both events are free and open to the public though space is limited and registration is required. Capacity is limited to 20 children per event and all children must have a parent or guardian present. To register, visit conservationfoundation.com/events
