In 2012, they have joined our Program Sponsors.This support helps improve our outreach, enables staff to spend more time communicating with sites, provides materials to events, and makes sure the website is up-to-date with plenty of materials for host organizations. In addition, DoD will sponsor a Walk on the Wild Side, a walkathon for conservation -- more news to come! DoD PIF joins Bureau of Land Managment and National Science Foundation. Many thanks for your support!
|IMBD in the Caribbean ~ Over 18 Events!|
International Migratory Bird Day coordinators in the Caribbean have begun sending us reports from their events. Angela Ramsey of Tobago's Department of Natural Resources and the Environment provided programs to students at three schools. She used EFTA's Jr. Birder journal and provided field trips to wetlands to learn about migratory birds.
|Connecting People to Nature - CLASS FULL!|
|The National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) course, Connecting People to Nature through Birds is full! We're looking forward to working with participants, who will learn about bird identification, tools for teaching others about birds, how to lead a bird walk, and much more.|
The course will be held from March 2012, in beautiful St. Marks NWR. In addition to seeing lots of birds, we're looking forward to manatee sitings, a boat ride, and a bird banding demonstration. If you can't make the 2012 course, join us for 2013!
