Bringing Kids and Nature Together with Birds
Executive Director for Iowa Young Birders
Iowa Young Birders is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote engagement in our natural world and conservation issues by empowering young Iowans to study and enjoy birds and birding. Whether it is seeing a colorful Baltimore Oriole high in a tree, hearing a melodious Wood Thrush singing deep in the woods, or simply spending a morning in a favorite park, Iowa Young Birders develops the next generation of conservationists by connecting kids with and educating them about birds and nature. Tyler will tell us more about Iowa Young Birders’ programs and share how together we can work to connect kids with the great outdoors.
