Feather Questers


Welcome to the teen/youth birding program of the North Branch Nature Center. We have provided oppotunities for teen birders throughout the region for over ten years, and Feather Questers hopes to inspire a new generation of young birders.

Whether a pre-teen, teen, or adult... whether a first time birder or an experienced veteran... there are opportunities for you to get involved in our youth birding program. Gray Jay
