The mission of the Education Committee is to promote birding activities of all kinds and with a variety of populations. In particular, our activities aim to introduce and encourage birding with children, seniors, the disabled, and other people that may not have had access to birding. We offer monthly presentations on topics of interest to club members, and we often invite members of other bird clubs to attend. The Education Committee meets via zoom at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month. We invite people interested in the Education Committee to attend our meetings. Contact us at [email protected].
We offer presentations each month on topics such as bird identification, where to bird locally, the dos and don’ts of bird feeders, and our popular monthly Do-It-Yourself Birding workshops. Currently, all our presentations take place via zoom. Descriptions of the presentations and instructions on registering can be found under Presentations and Workshops.
Links to the recorded videos of Education Committee Workshops and Hampshire Bird Club programs are here.
We offer scholarships for young people to attend birding or natural history camps and conferences. Applicants are 12-18 years old. An applicant or a family member is a member of the Hampshire Bird Club. You can download an Education Scholarship Application here.
