Event Details

On Saturday, May 31 at 8 a.m. join ecologist Ken Schmidt for a bird walk in the Wappinger Creek Watershed. Schmidt will provide insight into resident and migratory birds, their behavior, and the science of soundscapes.

Ken Schmidt is a visiting scientist at the Cary Institute and an avian behavioral ecologist from Texas Tech University. For several field seasons, Schmidt has led a research team investigating how songbirds use environmental cues to manage their daily activities, particularly avoiding predators, selecting habitats, and breeding decisions. 

The program will meet in the main campus parking area located at 2801 Sharon Tpk., Millbrook, New York. Space is limited and reservations are required. Wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes, and bring drinking water and binoculars. For more information, call (845) 677-7600 x121 or email freemanp@caryinstitute.org. Rain cancels the event.
