Registration required.
For adults. Would you like to know more about our feathered friends, but not sure where to start? If yes, then join us for an introduction to the basics of birding! We will be taking an auto tour together (participants will drive themselves) and be making several stops at a variety of habitats such as a forest, prairie, and glade. Each of these different habitats has its own variety of birds that is unique, so we will be investigating these areas to see who we can discover. We will cover a variety of methods to help with bird ID including the use of templates and notes, apps, and field guides. Additionally, a variety of bird related topics will be covered along the way, such as the importance of the Great Missouri Birding Trail, migration patterns, our simple daily life choices that can make a huge, positive impact on bird conservation and more. Come prepared to walk about 1 mile.
