Join Bill and Merilee Clifton – creationists, authors, Florida Master Naturalists, and science educators – as we focus on Florida birds at Orlando Wetlands Park in East Orange County. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, birding is the number one sport in America! The U.S. has over 51 million birders, and the number is growing. On this “Introduction to Birding” field trip, we will first learn how birds were specifically designed by their Creator to do what they do. Next, we will get down to the basics of birding: how to use binoculars, how to use a field guide, and how to identify birds. Then, we will take a hike observing birds in the wild. Children will have the opportunity to earn a Jr. Birding Certificate through Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and also how to continue earning advanced birding certificates on their own. Our day will include information on birding resources, how to start a bird “life list,” how to use bird alpha codes, how to create a backyard habitat for birds, where to see birds around Florida, bird crafts, and more!
