Most outings run from 10am-2pm, with an hour for a group lunch. Children must be accompanied by an adult (at least 1 adult per 4 children). Whenever possible, events are free. Any fees will be noted in an email before departure. There are no membership fees to join the Kids Club.

Members of Public Eye’s Kids Club visit exciting places where kids can have fun and learn something new. The focus of each outing will be art and educational activities that teach compassion for animals. Ideas are welcome.

Date: Saturday, May 9th
Thanks so much to those who attended our recent Bird Walk at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge. We saw more than birds walking the trails, including rabbits, groundhogs, wild turkeys, deer, and a baby snapping turtle! For the art activity, kids made some bead necklaces and bracelets for Mother's Day, as well as some "Sculpey" bird-shaped charms that they baked later. See our slideshow shown here. ("about the refuge")

A bird expert leads the walk at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge from 1-2pm. Artist Zipora Schulz leads a fun art activity from 2-3pm. There will be other fun bird-related activities all day long hosted by the Refuge staff.
Please bring snacks and juice for your kids. We will meet in the visitor center lobby at the Refuge between 12:45-1pm. We require an RSVP with number of participants, ages, and contact information.
