Bird watching club adds outdoor time to the school day so that youth can explore their environment and reap the many benefits that come from spending time outside.Through bird clubs, we invite you to introduce students to birds and spark their curiosity about the natural world, help them discover a passion for science investigation, or start a hobby they can enjoy for the rest of their lives. Bird watching club is committed to educating and developing good all-round birding skills in young, aspiring birders. We believe the young birders will discover new skills and enhance their talents, benefitting our entire community.

This hobby ensures strong evidence reinforcing the emotional, developmental, and educational value of contact with nature, and a  great way to encourage outdoor pursuits. Bird watching club helps to increase awareness and appreciation of natural world and install a conservation ethic in their members. Club activities do build important life-skills such as peer mentoring, leadership, communication and more.
