On January 2, 2016, PICA joined with PIFN to sponsor the annual CBC4Kids (Christmas Bird Count for Kids). The day was perfect. There was no snow, no rain, no wind, just sunshine and smiles. Small groups of children with their adult mentors walked the trails and shores of Brooks Point Regional Park to identify and count the various birds they observed. Afterwards everyone collected in a neighbour's backyard to compile the results and warm up with mugs of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Thanks to all the bird mentors who came to help the kids identify and count birds, and a special "Thank You" to Jill, Julie and Jackie for organizing the event and taking care of all the details, including the hot chocolate, cookies, and other goodies.
