Ornithology is an ideal science to introduce children to the healthy and exciting world of nature through bird watching. In this course, you will learn to search, identify and conserve the birds that live with us. We will also carry out a nest box workshop. We will learn to build and install them in order to increase the breeding places for some species of birds in the Foundation’s surroundings.
