SFVAS Young Birders Group
A Young Birder is any young person who is serious about birding, knows some birds, and is willing to learn. SFVAS conducts Young Birders Group walks to foster that learning, helping to create the next generation of birders. The world needs birders, to watch, to identify, to count and to speak out for protection of habitat. It’s not work, though — it’s fun.
Our Young Birders meet on the last Saturday of each month on a rotating schedule of sites. We visit Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, O’Melveny Park and Franklin Canyon Park. Check our Calendar of Events for the next walk. Our youth leaders are Alexander de Barros, a High School Senior who recently attended the National Audubon Camp for young people on Hogs Island, Maine, and Olivia White, a community college student who also works with children. They make a wonderful team! Do come and join us!! For any more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
