KidsWhoBird Club

The KidsWhoBird club is a club designed for kids aged 9-16 who are interested in learning about birds. We are going to try having monthly online meetings until we can safely meet in person again. Although this club was designed for kids in the Baton Rouge area when we were meeting in person, I am going to open it up to kids anywhere in Louisiana since we will be meeting online.

Kids may join by sending me a request telling me why they want to join. (If your kid is younger than 9 but really into birds, I may grant an exception). A handwritten request is preferable. Drawings are encouraged. Email to All new members will receive a packet of membership material.

You will be added to the mailing list and emailed information about each meeting directly.

Agenda for each meeting:

  • Meet and Greet. Tell bird stories (time limited)
  • Presentation. Might be done by me or one of the other members.
  • Discussion
  • Assignment to do before the next meeting

LOCATION: Online via Zoom.
