Explore our trails and look for feathered friends during our Kids’ Winter Birding Scavenger Hunt at the Elkhart Environmental Center! Throughout the month of February, families can search for and learn about winter birds on cards stationed along our trails. Kids can use a trail map to find the cards and borrow a birding backpack to search for real birds with binoculars along the way!
After checking off the birds on your list, send us a photo of your favorite card to be entered into a drawing to win a bluebird nesting box! Photos must be sent to EECmail@coei.org by March 1st. Limit one entry per family, please.
This activity is self-guided. Scavenger hunt sheets and birding backpacks can be picked up from our Visitor’s Cabin during office hours (Monday-Friday 8 AM -5 PM). A digital copy of the activity sheet can be found on our Facebook Events page for this event when our office is closed.
Recommended for ages 4 & older. No registration required.
