Bird Walk, 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Starts outside the Meadowlands Environment Center (first building on the left after you enter DeKorte). Join Kevin as he shares a simple and more effective approach to identifying shorebirds, “Birding by Impression” — as highlighted in his book, The Shorebird Guide.*
[In case of rain, the day will begin with the birding ID workshop inside the Environment Center.]
Workshop: Shorebirds and Birding by Impression, 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Held in the MEC’s Visitor Center. This interactive indoor workshop will amplify the “Birding by Impression” approach. The first half of the program concentrates on shorebirds and how to apply this approach in all field conditions. The second half shows how to apply this approach to all bird families.
Lunch Break: 12:45 to 2 p.m. BYO, and enjoy the sights of DeKorte Park.
Slide Show and Talk: “Birds on the Wind,” 2 to 3 p.m.
Held in the MEC’s Visitor Center. Breath-taking photos and several musical interludes add to the interesting nature of Kevin’s presentation.
Participants are free to enjoy DeKorte Park after the program.
*Copies of “The Shorebird Guide” are available for the bargain price of $17.5 at the Tidelands Treasures Gift Shop, inside the Environment Center, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Kevin will be available to autograph your copy between events.
