- 5:10 pm Birding 101 with presenter Doug Maple; see below for specifics.
WHY: We thought you might like to be there because our mission and goal are:
- Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
- Our goal is to further educational objectives, inform, and educate the public about relevant conservation issues.
The newly formed Cedar Keys Chapter of the National Audubon Society will host a presentation entitled Birding 101 on Thursday, April 21, at the Cedar Key Library. Doug Maple will focus on our abundant population of migratory shorebirds as well as other birds commonly found in and around our local waters such as ducks, loons, herons, egrets, terns etc.
Depending upon interest, we will conduct a follow-up field trip on Saturday, March 23rd, at a time to be determined by the tides and the group’s preference. At this time, we will caravan around to various points in and around Cedar Key where birds can be seen from the shoreline.
