Join Audubon Mid-Atlantic and Damien Ruffner as we introduce you to the wonderful world of birding! Birding (aka bird watching) has been a pastime for centuries. But it can be intimidating to start. "Where do I go to watch birds?" "What equipment do I need?" "What do I look for first?" This series is designed to answer those questions and introduce the world of birding to new audiences, novice birders, or anyone with an interest in the outdoors. We will take a deep-dive into the equipment, techniques, and codes of conduct of birding. This first workshop will concentrate on the equipment needed to bird and finding local groups to bird with as you enter a new hobby! This workshop will focus on identification and data gathering.
Note: there are TWO workshop sessionss to choose from: 9am-11am or 1pm-3pm
