Kids, Don’t Just Wing It; Learn Birding Basics From Audubon Society

The Santa Barbara Audubon Society will host Winter Bird Count 4 Kids: Introducing Young People to the Fun of Birdwatching, 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Jan. 20, at Lake Los Carneros Park in Goleta. Meet at Stow House parking lot, 304 N. Los Carneros Road.

The free event offers birding basics for kids ages 8-16 with a responsible adult.

Participants will take a guided walk around the lake with an experienced naturalist; be introduced to binocular boot camp (borrow binoculars or bring your own); and record and tally the bird species observed.

Participants also will receive a free souvenir bird list; free snacks; and, for the first 75 kids, a free t-shirt.

The event is sponsored by the Santa Barbara Audubon, with support from the city of Goleta, UCSB Associated Students Coastal Fund, Trader Joe's, Smart & Final, and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

Santa Barbara Audubon Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
