Got a young birder in your family? Put 'em in the car (binoculars, too) and drive over Sarasota for the first annual Celery Fields Bird-a-Thon. Don't worry, they will thank you for it.
Open to birders under 18, this event is a friendly team competition led by experts from the Sarasota Audubon Society to identify the most species in the time provided. Raffle prizes will be awarded, and free t-shirts will be given out to the first 100 registrants.
To register, send your name, grade and school to email@example.com, or call Jeanne Dubi at (941) 724-1709. Go for the glory, young birders, and may you come away with not only good prizes, but a great adventure as well. Have fun!
