Do you want to be part of setting a world record? On May 8, you can join more than 30,000 people around the world observing more than 7,000 bird species in a single day! In this family class, we’ll teach you how to use the most popular FREE birding apps, observe with and without binoculars, identify birds of the Arboretum, and listen for common songs and calls. You will then get a chance to go birdwatching on the trails to practice you skills and start a birding checklist. 

Before class, create an account on www.ebird.org, and download both the eBird and the Merlin® Bird ID app to any connected smart device. These are both 100% free. 

The Arboretum grounds, including the trails and Nature Playscape, will REOPEN on Thursday, July 18! All classes and events through Sunday, July 21 have been cancelled, and the Nature Center building remains closed at this time.
