Master Bird Conservationist Program
Feb 22 / March 7 / March 21 / April 4

The new Audubon CT "Master Bird Conservationist" Program is a 4-day workshop that will take place at the Bridgeport City Hall Annex on Feb. 22nd, March, 7th and March 21st, 2012, and will conclude with field trips to Important Bird Areas on April 4th. The goal of the program is to educate participants in identification and conservation of bird species, plus train them to act as conservation leaders within their communities. Participants will receive training in bird ID from Ken Elkins and Ted Gilman and attend talks on conservation strategies/programs lead by various professionals (including Bill Labich of Harvard Forest, Marjorie Shansky of Yale University, Joan Morrison of Trinity University, and CT DEEP Wildlife Biologist Jenny Dickson, among others). The workshop is free but participants are expected to partake in 20 hours of volunteer service participating in citizen science programs, educational outreach activities or conservation advocacy.
