Do you want to be part of setting a world record?  On May 9, 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, and listen for common songs and calls. Your family will then walk the trails of the Arboretum to practice your new skills and make a birding checklist.

Note:  If you want to get a head start, create an account on www.ebird.org, and download both the eBird and the Merlin® Bird ID app to any smart device.  These are both 100% free.
