The hills are alive with the sound of birds! But what exactly are they telling us? The NPS Northeast Temperate Network has been monitoring bird populations in the park since 2006. Join us for this 2 hour workshops where Ed Sharron, NPS Science Communication Specialist, will share some of the findings revealed by the monitoring and explain how you can get involved in this volunteer run monitoring program. We'll also learn how to identify the songs of common birds in the park's forest and then head out for a walk around the park to look and listen for birds.

A limited number of binoculars will be available for loan. Please dress appropriately for extended outdoor activity. Co-sponsored by Vermont Coverts and the Vermont Woodlands Association.
