Celebrate Urban Birds

Thursday, April 9 , 2 pm – 4 pm, 2015

Established in 2013, Kiddie Science is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization aimed at presenting science to young children age two and up. It is our mission to empower children to apply critical thinking skills to their world and foster a lifetime love of science.

In collaboration with Celebrate Urban Birds at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Prospect Park Audubon Center, Kiddie Science is presenting a free, hands-on, exploratory science workshop to learn about the urban birds of Prospect Park. Learn about the characteristics of birds, explore their adaptations, create an art project, and conduct a bird survey in the park.
