6/16/2022 - Birdwatching in Connecticut on July 12, 2022

On Tuesday, July 12th, 2022 from 1-2:30pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for a virtual program and learn more about birdwatching in Connecticut.

Summer is a great time to birdwatch in Connecticut. Learn more about local places to observe birds by exploring Connecticut’s recreational trails, city parks, state parks, wildlife refuges, and other sanctuaries. We’ll see what surprising birds have been found in our area recently, and find groups to join as they’re finding birds in your local area. Also, we’ll learn how we can help protect these havens for both people and birds.

Ken's interest in birds started when he was 10 years old, while watching the birds at his grandmother's feeders in Vermont, and he has been obsessed ever since. After earning a degree in 1998 in Environmental Biology and Interpretation from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, he started his career in conservation education at Westmoor Park in West Hartford, CT and quickly moved onto Connecticut Audubon Society. In 2008, Ken moved onto National Audubon, where he's the Community Conservation Manager based at the Audubon Center at Bent of the River in Southbury.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. The Rutledge Summer Series was made possible by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund. Registration is required. Zoom invitation links will be sent via email on the day of the program.
