Event description

Description

What are birds really? Discuss birds classification, behavior, their ecology, and importance. Learn how to sketch and describe birds in a Nature journal (and where to share our observations). Observe and practice how to spot (including how to master binoculars and scope), and how to identify our local birds by sound, shape, flight, behavior and more…

⚠️ We favor event quality over attendance quantity, so this is a limited size participants event. To reserve your spot, don't forget to register! And if after registering you can't make it, it's totally fine, then please tell us so that we can give your ticket to people on the waiting list. Thanks!

What to Bring:

  • A camera, magnifying glass, and binoculars if possible.
  • Your art supplies (remember that we hike, so light and portable are key!) » Check our EwA Naturalist Daybag description.
