EventsBirding 101 Hands-on Class

Saturday, June 1, 2019
9 a.m. – noon
Valley of Eden Bird Sanctuary, Stockton, IL

Learn some birding techniques from local experts!

Birding 101 is geared toward novice birders that would like to become familiar with some
common nesting birds in our area. Participants will learn how to use binoculars and field guides. Compare different field guides by hearing reviews by seasoned birders. A team of local expert birders will guide instructional tours at the preserve. With these tools at hand, you will learn the language of the birds. They are telling a story you might want to hear. By the time you are done, you may never look out the window in the same way! This event is organized by the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation. Northwest IL Audubon is a co-sponsor of the event.

The event is open to the public to anyone older than 10 years of age. The event is free to JDCF members and a fee of $10 for non-members is requested. Please bring your own binoculars if you have them. There will be some available to borrow. We suggest that participants bring water, dress in layers appropriate for the weather and wear hiking shoes for walking on uneven ground. Valley of Eden is owned by Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation and is located southwest of Stockton. For more information please contact the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation at 815-858-9100 or visit the website at www.jdcf.org.
