Birds are exciting, fun and beautiful.
They can inspire and bring joy. This presentation will share some of the photos of birds that may be seen by anyone and is to encourage folks to get outside to learn, grow and share. Enjoying birds only really requires a watchful eye and the desire to enjoy nature. Further, introducing children and young people to birds encourages them to get outdoors.
We will be sharing and encouraging folks to get active, whether by sitting outdoors to watch, walking a trail or even paying attention outside their windows. Birding is an activity that may be enjoyed by all and serve to increase awareness of nature. If we are excited and passionate about birds and nature, it will get others excited.
