Birding For Everyone

Birdwatching is considered by many to be a hobby for white, middle class, middle aged Americans. But John C. Robinson is working to change that by teaching minority children and young adults about the joy and importance of birdwatching. Robinson wrote Birding For Everyone as part of his "birding" mission.
