Rowe Adventures: Become a Bird Scientist
May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Do you have a budding birder in your family? Well come on out to Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary to learn what birding is all about! In celebration of Migratory Bird Month, we are holding a Become a Bird Scientist event as part of our Rowe Adventures education series. This event is an introduction to bird watching for the whole family! At 9:00 am, guest speaker UNK professor, Letty Reichart, will be discussing how scientists use mist nets to capture birds to place a leg band for scientific studies. In addition, guided hikes will occur at 10:00 am and 11:00 am with an expert birder to provide helpful tips and tricks for identifying birds. Bird related children’s activities, such as using utensils to learn about different bird beaks and matching birds based upon their song, will take place at the nature center.
