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.
Wetlands Discovery Program
If you are in grades 3-6, you can participate in our Wetlands Discovery Program with your class.
Wetlands Discovery Online
Soar with me online through the wetlands to discover many interesting facts about my home. Maybe you will recognize some of my friends there!
I hope your parents will help you join Young Audubon to receive announcements about our field trips, hands-on workshops, and family events. Activities include birding field trips, whale watching, creek explorations, and more.
Wildlife Education Day
Sponsored by us at SCVAS, the FREE Wildlife Education Day has become one of the premier festivals in the Bay Area where hundreds of families come together to celebrate and learn about some of my bird friends, nature, ecology, and wildlife through many hands-on activities.
