Camp Oty'Okwa, 24799 Purcell Rd, South Bloomingville; 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. $35 including lunch

Everywhere we look we are likely to see a bird. Sometimes we notice them, other times they are just “specs of motion” that pass by us in our day to day lives. Birds are a great indicators of habitat type and ecological health and it is easy to learn 100 species of Ohio’s birds. In this workshop we will focus on the keys to bird identification, habitats to find birds, backyard birds and some of the species of birds one is likely to encounter with a little bit of effort. After some in-class discussion, we will take a field trip to local bird hotspots to view various species of birds. Hopefully this workshop will make you want to stop and notice what that “spec of motion” was that just flew by you. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
