There are some great learning events coming up with YCS:

Yukon Bird Club Birdathon - Friday May 25 5pm to Saturday May 26 5pm
It's a 24-hour race to find birds... by foot and by bike! Whether you're a longtime birder or can't tell a junco from a robin, this is a great way to learn and meet new friends.

Friday May 25 - 6-8:30pm - Bike and Bird (meet at gazebo, km 4 Fish Lake Rd.) We'll bike around McIntyre Creek and downtown.
Saturday May 26 - 8am-11am - Downtown/Airport/Hillcrest Bird Walk (meet at YCS office) We'll meet at YCS, biking to the Black St. stairs, then beginning a walk up to Hillcrest from downtown.
Saturday May 26 - 1pm-4pm - Hidden Lakes Bird Walk (meet at YCS office) We'll bike to Riverdale and then beginning a walk up to the Hidden Lakes trails to finish our 24-hour birding session before the BBQ at Robert Service Campground (6pm).
