With Christmas approaching the kids will be
excited about all the gifts awaiting them under the tree, but why not get them
excited about the magic of nature, for free right here in Beijing?
This Sunday, EcoAction will be hosting bird-watching and fun nature activities
at Olympic Forest Park aimed to make us learn about and appreciate nature.
While 7.45am may be an early start on a Sunday
morning but on the bright side it will mean that you’ll have a better chance of
spotting more of the 400+ species on show in Beijing according to EcoAction.
Experienced English and Chinese speaking
guides will be on hand to help you distinguish your Grey-headed Woodpecker from your Grey-capped Pygmy Woodpecker.
After some outdoor games you’ll be taken
inside out of the cold for some more activities and ‘special’ refreshments
cooked by solar power.
The activities will finish at midday just
in time for lunch or if you’ve been inspired enough then why not dive back into
nature for the rest of the day.
