Walk with an Eco-Ologist at Prairiewoods: Ornithology
- 4 p.m. to 6p.m. -
- All Ages
Join us on the second Tuesday of each month as we Walk with an Eco-Ologist at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha)! Each program will give you the opportunity to learn from a local ‘ologist and dive deeper into specific topics within the field of ecology. Come prepared to walk our trails and, depending on the topic, get a little dirty to get better acquainted with some of our plant and animal kin. We are excited to offer seven programs on the following topics: raptology (birds of prey), agronomy (farming), lepidopterology (butterflies and moths), wild ethnobotany (wild edibles and medicines), ornithology (birds), entomology (bugs) and dendrology (trees). In August, join ornithologist Jim Durbin of the Cedar Rapids Audubon Society as we explore the prairies, woodlands and wetlands in search of a diverse array of birds. We will share fun facts, observation techniques and connections these creatures have to the environment. If you have binoculars, a camera with zoom or a butterfly net, feel free to bring them. The cost is $20 per session, and registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
