Youth Birding Competition

The Youth Birding Competition is a 24-hour birding event during the peak of spring migration. Youth teams spend the day finding as many species as they can as they compete against teams their own age. The competition is capped off with a wildlife show and awards banquet. The 2018 event was held from 5 p.m. Friday, April 27, to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 28. The 2019 event is set for April 26–27.
