About the Event

**This program is 18+**

Join an Ijams naturalist for this immersive, 4-hour workshop to explore the secret world of birds! We'll spend time focusing on bird anatomy, taxonomy & language, and species identification for common (and not so common!) birds of East Tennessee. Through in-field exploration, you'll come away with newfound talent for identifying birds both both sight and sound, meet certain birds up close and personal, and have an expert grasp on the life and migration history of the numerous species which call East TN their breeding territory.  

Participants are asked to bring the following:

1. Notebook

2. Pen or pencil

3. Water & snacks 

4. Binoculars (binoculars may also be borrowed from Ijams for this course)

5. Wear weather-appropriate clothing & comfortable hiking shoes

Additional details will be sent out to participants as the course approaches!
