About the Event

Clayton County Conservation is excited to host the next Building Better Birders Workshop with Kelly McKay. Join us for this day of birding to learn some new birding skills at the Osborne Nature Center on Saturday, March 13th starting at 1:00 p.m.

1:00  p.m. Thrushes and Kin (bluebirds and robins)

3:00  p.m. In-depth Bird Hike

The workshop will be led by Wildlife Biologist Kelly McKay, of the BioEco Research and Monitoring Center. McKay, with assistance from Mark Roberts (Clinton County Conservation) and Brian Ritter (Nahant Marsh Education Center), developed the Building Better Birders Series in an effort to advance public skills identifying birds and promote more involvement in Citizen Science. Their pilot program in Clinton County was honored the “Ding Darling Environmental Education Award” from the Iowa Association of Naturalists and the Iowa Conservation Education Coalition. This year McKay is expanding to other counties throughout Iowa. These workshops are funded through a grant from the Resource Enhancement and Protection-Conservation Education Program (Reap-CEP).

Clayton County Conservation will offer two more workshops with McKay over the next few months. Watch for February’s date to be rescheduled and join us May 16th for Warblers and More, another All Day Workshop.
