Many thanks to Northwest Federal Credit Union for its very generous gift of 100 Backyard Birds of the Mid-Atlantic folding guides. In addition to use in support of ASNV’s Youth Education Programs, the guides will be used in conjunction with Celebrating Birds, a summer-long, family-focused program investigating the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics of birds. Celebrating Birds is a collaboration of the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia, Children’s Science Center, and Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The program will include various bird-related activities and guest presenters at the Children’s Science Center Lab (11948 Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax), participation in Cornell’s Celebrate Urban Birds global citizen science project, and a Family Bird Walk at the Loudoun Water campus on Sunday, July 22nd. The groups hope to inspire their young birders-in-training both in the Lab and in the field with their new bird guides. Thank you, Northwest Federal Credit Union!
