Birding for Beginners
Saturday, November 18 09:00 AM
Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship works together with local residents and communities to support conservation of important habitats and wildlife. The group is hosting a series of free beginner birding workshops throughout the Okanagan and Similkameen for those interested in learning how to identify local birds.
Participants will receive information including a backgrounder on bird anatomy, how to get started with identifying birds including a summary of field guides and apps available, as well as learn how to attract birds to their properties using different feeders, feed and nest boxes. Weather permitting, participants will then get a chance to head outdoors to put their new skills to use.
The first workshop will be held at the EECO centre in Kelowna on Saturday November 18th from 9am - 12pm
The second of these workshops will be held in Oliver at Burrowing Owl Winery on Saturday, November 25 from 10am - 1pm.
The last workshop in the fall series will take place at the OSS office in Penticton at 304 Martin street Sunday November 26th 9am - 12pm
While the workshop is free, space is limited and OSS is asking hopeful participants to register through a link provided on their website at www.osstewardship.ca.
