Students from across the United States are participating in The National Schoolyard Birding Challenge (NSBC). The NSBC is a monthly competition that introduces the interesting and educational hobby of birding to students.
Students learn how to identify birds by observing the various species found on school property. Besides encouraging students to become more familiar with the natural world, the competition also benefits participants who must practice patience, teamwork, and communication.
The NSBC is supported by the National Biodiversity Parks, a 501(c)(3) non-profit groups. Donations can be made via post or online at the Fledging Birders website.
