25 Feb Excursions for Learning About Birds
Submitted by: Pilar Bernal, Environmental Education & Community Outreach Manager
Nearing the date of the 2nd International Festival of Migratory Birds, which will be the 7th of March, we will be giving talks and going on excursions with students to motivate them to learn about birds and the importance of conserving them.
Together with the organization Osa Birds, we will walk with students on different trails with the objectives of learning skills in the use of binoculars and bird identification guides; learning to observe birds in their different habitats; and finally, identifying the most frequently observed species in the Puerto Jimenez area.
We’ll be going on our first hikes with Corcovado School, a private school with a major focus on increasing environmental awareness among its students.
