Ijam's Nature Center is offering a birding adventure at the New Harvest Farmer's Market this Thursday, May 19. Keep up with the happenings at this market by liking their Facebook page and signing up for their newsletter.

The first program, which will be for adults, is from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. The second program, which will be for children and their families, is from 3 p.m. - 4 p.m. The program will cover an introduction to birding (how to use binoculars and field guides), as well as covering the common birds of this area. If you have binoculars, please bring them.  If you don't - that's o.k., too.  Wear comfortable walking shoes for our walk around the park to identify birds. The program is presented by Emily Boves, a naturalist/educator at Ijams who has been birding across the U.S. for 10 years.
