Encourage Young Birders

Birding is a great activity that you can start at any age, and enjoy at any level.  There are some great resources and groups that can help young birders get started on this life-long passion.

In Minnesota, there is a Minnesota Young Birders Club.  It connects youth to other young birders in the state via monthly field days, workshops, and social media. This group provides a challenging environment where youth can learn about birds, conservation and science while socializing with friends.

Elsewhere, the Young Birders Network is a group that aims to provide resources for young birders to connect and learn, while giving their adult advocates resources to encourage and support. The network is coordinated by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and includes dozens of partners.
