Days This Activity Meet & Where
Tuesdays only in Room 18, then venturing out and about campus.

What it's about
Do you like eating? Learning? Scavenger hunts? Conservation? Photography? Beach, mountains and pastures? Publishing? Competing? Friendship? This club may be for you. While some portions of this activity will be more strenuous in terms of hiking, walking along jetties, wooded trails, etc. it is an activity virtually everyone can participate in if they have either the gift of sight and/or hearing.

Goals for the 2017-18  School Year
During the school year we will record various sightings of birds on as we develop a “life list” for our club. To do so we will:
1. Learn to identify various species of birds.
2. Learn to use binoculars, spotting scopes, etc.
3. Meet to develop plans for spotting the largest numbers possible.
4. Travel to various locations throughout the state.
5. Compete in the World Series of Birding in May.
6. Create a calendar and/or coffee table book for publication at the end of the school year.
