UMaine Extension 4-H offers new birding club for Maine youth

University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H is offering a new statewide birding club for youth ages 9–18, with online monthly meetings 34 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Dec. 16. 

The “4-H Bird Chats” club is for youth interested in citizen science, learning more about birds and sharing observations with others. Participants will learn how to contribute data to Project FeederWatch, a winter survey of birds in locations across North America, and share learning experiences with peers. 

The club is free to join; registration is required. Register and find the Zoom meeting schedule on the 4-H Bird Chats webpage. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Zabet NeuCollins, 207.667.8212;
