Education CommittEE

Our Goal

The goal of the Education Committee is to offer birding workshops and activities with the aim to introduce and encourage bird watching for everyone. We offer monthly topics of interest in person or on-line. 

The Education Committee meets via zoom monthly, every first Tuesday from 7-8 p.m.

Our Presentations

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 Workshops.

New Member Bird Walks

This is a new initiative from the Education Committee. We will offer new member bird walks, open to anyone with any level of experience, once each season. They will be led by members of the Ed Committee. For details and directions, check Events listings.
