A half-day workshop for bird educators

If you love wild birds and are keen to reach out to children and others to share your enthusiasm for birds with them, this workshop by Early Bird is for you.

You may already conduct bird walks and slideshows on birds, or perhaps you haven’t yet, but would like to start activities like these. Either way, this workshop will introduce you to a variety of techniques and activities to get children and adults excited about birds. Apart from the more ‘conventional’ activities, Early Bird will also cover other creative avenues including sketching, skits and more — making learning fun while sensitizing children about birds.

Attend the workshop to learn about different activities and materials that you can use, meet others with similar interests, and discuss various issues to do with introducing birds into the lives of children and adults. All those who participate will be given a certificate of participation.
