  3. Birding Basics

    July 10, 2021, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Parker Mill County Park

    The magic of birds is they seem to be everywhere you go. Local parks, backyards, apartment balcony railings, quiet forests, and city streets. Birding can be enjoyed just about anywhere, but with so many species it can seem like a daunting hobby. Join Naturalist, Kelsey Dehring, to learn tricks to identifying birds based on habitat, markings, and sounds. We’ll also discuss what to look for in binoculars. No equipment needed. We will have basic binoculars for you to use. This program is intended for people brand new to birding. Space is limited to 12 birders. Email Kelsey at [email protected] to register.

  4. Stewardship Saturday: Stiltgrass Workshop

    July 10, 2021, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Watkins Lake State Park & County Preserve

    Join us the second Saturday of every month to help the environment and explore new places. With our partners at the JLW CISMA, we will introduce Stiltgrass, an invasive plant that’s new to the region. Early detection and rapid response are important to try and stop the spread of this aggressive grass. Volunteers will learn how to identify and manage stiltgrass, and help map new populations throughout the woodlands. Recreation Passport is required; no experience needed. Email Katie at [email protected] to register.
