Birding Bonanza: Community Science Day

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Are you passionate about conservation? Does community science pique your interest? Do you enjoy watching bird feeders or listening to bird calls? This might be the program for you!

Celebrate Migratory Bird Month at Fontenelle Forest with our Birding Bonanza: Community Science Day! Our naturalist educators will help you learn how to identify common and migratory birds by sight and sound. We’ll discuss how you can assist conservation efforts by counting birds at the Forest and submitting the data. After learning the tools of the trade, we’ll go on a naturalist-led hike and count birds together – prepare for easy to moderate terrain and bring your binoculars! We’ll also have some binoculars to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis.

This program is geared toward amateur birders, new birders, and science-minded families. Many avenues of community science data collection are available as apps, so we encourage you to bring your phone!

DATES: May 11
TIME: 10:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.
LOCATION: Fontenelle Forest Nature Center
PROGRAM FEE: $15 for members; $20 for non-members. MEMBERS MUST SIGN IN TO RECEIVE DISCOUNT.
