Introduction to Birding With Audubon Vermont

Taking Your Casual Birding Up a Notch with Audubon Vermont- Tuesday, December 8th, 6:30pm

Whether you recently started a new birding hobby or you are a long-time birder who is ready to improve your skills, you can join Audubon Vermont for an hour of skill building and improving. From birding-by-ear to selecting binoculars, we will share tips, tools, and resources to get you birding from your windows to your favorite hiking trail. And because we could all use some good news, she will also share some data from the field season of conservation work across Vermont. Please bring your questions as well!

Audubon Vermont’s inquiry-based science programs encourage exploration, foster critical thinking, and build confidence. We inspire conservation actions that impact local communities: forest management, climate action, and native plants for birds.
