Monarchs and their amazing migration to Mexico are in peril for many reasons. Learn about the monarch life cycle, migration, cycle, how you can attract them to your home garden or favorite public space, and how to raise them to send them on their fall journey. Resources for milkweed and garden design also included.
Don’t be afraid of the little green jobs! The workshop will focus on the field marks of fall warblers that typically pass through our region, with an emphasis on species that change appearance greatly between spring and fall and on species that are most often confused with one another.
Bill Young will lead us in four two-hour sessions examining a variety of bird behaviors, including avian feeding, reproduction, migration, visual and auditory displays, and more. Each session will feature video, audio, and photographs to help people to learn about the many aspects of bird behavior.
Join Dr. Tom Wood, Associate Professor of Integrative and Interdisciplinary Studies in the School of Integrative Studies (SIS) at George Mason University, to start learning birds through understanding their lives, communication and role in the world outside our windows and in the wilderness.
