About the Club

Many people think bird-watching is an activity just for older people, but that's not true! Birds are all around us, from parks and forests to downtown city centers. And young people with an interest in nature and birds are everywhere. The MYBC was originally founded in 2014 for young folks to meet each other and develop their interests in nature and birds. All Club Members have a say in how the club is run, and have chances to take on leadership roles and give back to their communities.
