Jump Start Your Birding Skills

Explore the Pigeon River Country forest in search of feathered friends!   Retired wildlife biologist, Doug Reeves, will show you the basics of birding on May 27th, from 9 am to 12 noon.
Learn how to get started with the eBird and Merlin apps while taking a stroll through the woods to see what you can find.*  This is a youth-friendly event – no prior experience is necessary.
