Pokémon Go Birding!
Saturday, February 17 / 1 PM – 3 PM
Included with general admission to the VINS Nature Center

Professor Oak needs your help! VINS is teeming with real-life Pokémon, frolicking about feeders and chattering in the trees. It’s the perfect opportunity to study them and he needs your help to catch them all, not with a Poké Ball but with your smartphone camera!

In participation with the Great Backyard Bird Count, learn to count and identify these real life Pokémon. Once you capture as many different Pokémon as you can on camera, head back to the lab to report your numbers and show your photos to our team of Pokémon scientists who will help you to identify them and teach you all about them.

As a gift from Professor Oak, for each different Pokémon you find, you can bring one home in the form of a playable and collectable card! Not only will you help to advance Pokémon research, but by participating in the backyard bird count you can help out real-life scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
