Julian Young Birders Club

Saturday, April 1, 2023 - 9:00am

Join the Julian Young Birders Club!

Outdoor naturalist and educator Greg Schuett will lead bird outings on the first Saturday of each month for ages 11-13.  By visiting local birding "hot spots" in the mountains of east county San Diego, Bird Club members will learn about different diverse bird species and their habitats. Youth will also learn about the life cycle of different birds, their unique features that allow them to adapt to their habitat, and how to identify them. Outing locations include VMF's Volcan Mountain Nature Center, Lake Cuyamaca, and the Santa Ysabel Preserve.

Being explorers and investigators, children will develop their observation skills and learn about the many connections found in nature while having fun in the outdoors. Membership is free.

Greg Schuett is a VMF Board Member and former Principal of the Cuyamaca Outdoor School. Other outing leaders include Janice Smith, VMF's Outdoor Educator, and Suzie Meyer, VMF's Engagement Coordinator and Board Member.
