Monthly Program: Back to School: VAAS’s 2nd Grade Birdwatchers Program

  • Tuesday, December 19, 2023
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Venice United Church of Christ, Naar Hall, 620 Shamrock Rd., Venice

This evening takes us back to the classroom for a look at this highly successful and long-standing VAAS education program. Learning about birds and their environment, along with a lesson on birdwatching and using binoculars, supports the students’ science curriculum and prepares them for putting their new skills into action. A fieldtrip to observe the nesting birds at Audubon Rookery Park is the highlight of the program for the students, leaving a lasting impression on both the children and the many VAAS volunteers who help. Linda retired from a successful Sarasota County Schools teaching career and now fills her time as a watercolor artist, Florida Master Naturalist, VAAS Board Member, and the coordinator of the 2 nd Grade Birdwatchers Program and the 5th Grade Scrub Jay Program.

All are welcome - members of the public as well as Venice Audubon Members.

Participants are strongly encouraged to follow current COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
