Youth Education

Our Education committee works with youth and teachers through in-school and after-school programs and at Science Fair events. In addition, the “No Child Left Inside” program introduces students to the joys of birding through in-class and field trip experiences.

Due to the continuing coronavirus threat, Mt. Diablo Audubon Society Education committee is not offering in-school or after-school programs and field trips at this time.

No Child Left Inside

Mt. Diablo Audubon’s “No Child Left Inside” program introduces young people to bird watching. In early spring, we work with Antioch students, going into classrooms to teach fundamentals such as how to use binoculars, and partnering with Native Bird Connections for live-bird presentations to illustrate bird anatomy. In late May, volunteers take students birding within Contra Loma Regional Park. Over more than a decade, “No Child Left Inside” has provided outdoor education to more than 1,000 students. For more information, contact Leader Paul Schorr.

Young Birders Club

Mt. Diablo Audubon also sponsors a Young Birders Club which gives young people who like birds and the outdoors a chance to meet other young birders with similar interests, while getting outside and, of course, seeing birds. Monthly field trips and other bird-related activities are planned from August-May. For more information, contact Juan Pablo Galván at .
