Looking for a fun way to mark Earth Day, enjoy the outdoors and connect with nature, all while practicing physical distancing?

From Tuesday, April 21 to Thursday, April 23, our outdoor education department is hosting a Backyard Bird Count for all WRDSB students and families. Counting birds can be done easily from a backyard, balcony or window. With a few simple resources, everyone can enjoy a bit of nature and learn about Waterloo Region’s beautiful birds.

It’s free, fun and easy – all participants that submit observations will get a certificate of appreciation.

For more information on the event and how to participate, please visit our Outdoor and Environmental Education website.

We invite you to share pictures of the birds you see on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #WRDSBbirdwatch.

Happy bird watching!
