Have you always been fascinated by birds but thought there were to many to try and learn? Or maybe you've always wanted to attend a bird program, but were intimidated by the 'life-listers' and established bird enthusiasts? Well we're here to tell you birding is for everyone and it's never too late to start learning. Strawberry Plains is hosting a beginning birder program with the renowned Gene Knight on Saturday July 12th, 9 am - noon. Gene, who is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable birders in the area, happens to also be a fantastic educator and will be offering this special course for the first time. There will be an indoor presentation followed by a hike, where Gene and others will work with attendees on their ID skills, both visual and aural. The cost is $10 per person and spaces are limited, so please RSVP to Mitch, [masked] or[masked]-1155.
