Our participants are having a great time!

I really appreciated the different ways your speakers combined their love of birds and the environment with art, with engaging children, with noticing and playing, with language. It was inspiring.

Participant, Inspired by Birds Panel

I have already identified 4 new ( to me ) birds based on the educator’s talk. I really appreciated that the birds mentioned were local and in the area now. The descriptions of the song stayed with me and meant that I recognized them when out in the forest and could confirm them with the bird net app.

Participant, Migratory Bird Songs Webinar

I must tell you how pleased I am with all that I’m learning from the online education events. It feels so satisfying learning more about the beauteous nature around us. Not just learning but also coming to understand them better, their personalities, characteristics, habitats, etc..

Participant, Birds of a Feather Walk
