Event Description:
Grab your binoculars, spotting scopes, and cameras and join Indiana DNR's nongame bird biologists to view fall migratory shorebirds at Goose Pond FWA.

We will take a hike out to a mud flat and discuss shorebird identification while watching the birds feed on invertebrates in their wetland habitat. All ages and experience levels are invited; new bird watchers are especially encouraged to come. We will meet at the Visitor's Center and carpool to a location where we will hike up to one mile to view shorebirds and discuss shorebird identification. Participants may need to walk through mud and wet grass.

This workshop will be outside in open and forested areas. Please dress accordingly, rubber boots are recommended. Water, sunscreen, bug repellent, and long lenses for your cameras is also recommended. A limited number of loaner binoculars will be available, but if you can please bring your own.

There is no cost associated in attending this workshop. Participants must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend.

Pre-registration is required to participate in this workshop due to limited space. Register with the Red icon at the top right.
