Piedmont Young Birders
The Piedmont Young Birders is an organization for high school and middle school students, sponsored jointly by the Piedmont Bird Club and the T. Gilbert Pearson Audubon Society. It is an excellent opportunity for our members to share their love of birds and the natural world with the next generation. Meetings consist of a combination of guided activities to learn about birds and spending time discovering and identifying birds first-hand. Membership is open to students in the Triad area in grades 6-12.
