Community Naturalist Program
An education program to connect people with nature. Our naturalists offer field trips and classroom lessons to schools and the public. Programs focus on birds within themes of natural history and ecology.
2022 Summary by Larry Weeks, Program Chair
The 2022 Community Naturalist Program included 19 programs that are summarized in the Program Summary below. The number of programs is down this year for 2 reasons; (1) the lingering impact of the Covid pandemic made it difficult to enter the schools, and (2) due to a car accident on August 10th, I was without a car for 3 months.
A beginning/intermediate birding workshop was held which included 4 classroom sessions and a field trip to the Lee Metcalf NWR, 37 people attended the workshop which raised $1,075.00 for the Chapter.
Ginny Fay and the author teamed up for a MOLLI class for beginning birders, which included field trips to Metcalf, Maclay Flat and Erskine Fishing Access. The program raised $1,200.00 for the Chapter.
