Workshop for kids: introduction to birdwatching
May 13 is World Migratory Bird Day and a workshop for children to celebrate this occasion will take place in Lagoa on that day from 4pm to 6pm.
Organisers will introduce children aged five to 10 to birdwatching. “We will talk with them about migration of birds and why water is so important. We will do activities to get them involved, such as actual birdwatching, journaling their observations in a prepared journal that we will hand out before we set off, playing games, singing songs and doing a creative project which the children can take home,” they say.
“Our aim is to let the children know not only about this amazing and important world of birds but also to experience as much as possible first hand and enable them to have a positive experience being outside in nature. We are hoping to plant a seed that will grow into love and respect for nature, and which will cause the children (the next generation) to be more aware and respectful with it.”
Cost is €15 (including material), with the fee going to support the movement “Salvar as Alagoas Brancas” (Save Alagoas Brancas).
Participants will receive detailed information upon registration. For preparation purposes, only registered participants can take part.
