Welcome to the Kids' Corner!
by Avery the Avocet
I'm Avery the Avocet. I'll be your guide in exploring the kids' corner.
Avery the Avocet
Fly with me between the different sections of this Kids' Corner to explore the amazing bird species and habitats in the Santa Clara Valley and the greater Bay Area. Find out how to get involved in fun field trips and events for you and your friends and families. Learn about current environmental issues and discover how to take action to protect wildlife and the environment.
If you have any questions, just send me an email, and I'll get back to you soon.
