Event Description Birds make a perfect means for connecting people to nature. Birds are awake and active when we are; they are relatively easy to spot and hear; and, birds are in every backyard. Moreover, research has shown that the ability to identify birds heightens awareness and creates a sense of stewardship among youth and adults. In this course, explore activities that engage people in bird watching. Specifically, participants will learn to teach others basic bird identification, and explore a variety of programs that connect people to nature including citizen science and mist netting birds.
