2016 Events

Date Title Location Description
May 13-15, 2016 Southeast Spring BOW Workshop Juneau For additional details visit the BOW Schedule page.
May 4, 7 pm – 8:30 pm Wildlife Wednesday - Birding By Ear Workshop Mat-Su Mat-Su College, Fred and Sara Machetanz Building, Room 202. 
Every spring our neighborhoods fill with the sound of bird songs. Although most people rely on their sense of sight to identify different types of birds, sound is an excellent and, in some cases, easier way to identify them. Just by learning a few bird songs your world can rapidly expand. From the comfort of a deckchair, you can tell what kind of bird it is, their gender, and that they are feeling amorous or territorial. This will be a fun and easygoing workshop designed to give you some basic tools and skills to open your ears to the wonderful world of identifying birds by sound.

Additional Information

Adults and kids are welcome – and although oriented for the beginner, experienced birders can join us to work on their birding by ear skills and tune up for the birding season that is already upon us! Presented by Jessica Speed, The Nature Conservancy.
