  • Adult Education Workshop: The Birds Around Us with John Watts

    Time: 9:00 am - 4:30 pm   Camp Oty'okwa, 24799 Purcell Rd, South Bloomingville, OH 43152, USA 
    Description:

    Birds are virtually everywhere. Sometimes we notice them, other times they are just "specs of motion" that pass by us in our day-to-day lives. Birds are 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 one is likely to encounter with a little effort. After some in-class discussion, we will take a field trip to local bird hotspots to view various species of birds. Join expert and co-author of Birds of Hocking County, Ohio, John Watts, for this hands-on workshop. The cost is $35 and lunch is included. Graduate credit is available.
