Event details

Get up early and join a naturalist to learn birding basics. After a bit of instruction, we’ll head out on a hike to try out our identification skills. If you have binoculars and a favorite field guide, bring them; otherwise we will have a few to share. Prior to the program, you may wish to download the Merlin Bird ID app to your phone.
