Program Information

Are you interested in learning more about what feathered friends live in our area? Join Lisa Duke, Sanctuary Manager, in this workshop to learn how to observe a bird in the wild and use a field guidebook or mobile application to identify it.  This is a great opportunity for individuals looking to start a new hobby or refine a longtime love of bird watching. We will spend some time indoors learning skills and then take what you just learned outside to practice identification. Please make sure to dress for the weather and bring your binoculars and most loved local field guide! Participants will take home an informational packet and light refreshment will be provided.
