Interested in birding? Ever wonder about the birds that frequent your feeder, yard, or neighborhood? Want to take your interest to the next level? If so, join us for Birding Basics, a quarterly, indoor gathering for beginning birders sponsored by Forest Park Forever. To start the new year, Denise Kirkpatrick from the Wild Bird Center will break down some beginning essentials, such as optics and their selection process, a general introduction to birding, and the ever personal and very important bird field guide selection. There will be light refreshments and snacks. Reservations will help us plan, but we won’t turn you away at the door. RSVP to Forest Park Forever's Jean Turney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
