Monthly Bird Walk  Series with Kristi Dranginis

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Join birder Kristi Dranginis on the second Tuesday of each month for a golden opportunity to explore the rich and varied habitats of White Memorial while learning how to identify birds on an educational walk. Kristi is the founder of Bird Mentor: www.BirdMentor.com

In the words of Kristi, “If you are looking for a walk where the leader gives you all of the answers, this is probably not for you. If, on the other hand, you are ready to learn how to distinguish and deeply connect with what you are seeing and hearing, then please join us!”

The walks will average about 2 hours, but feel free to head out whenever you need to. Open to all experience levels. Dress for the weather! Will take place rain or shine! 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., Meet in front of the A. B. Ceder Room. FREEDonations will be accepted to help defray the Conservation Center’s programming expenses.
