Birds are excellent indicators of the health of an ecosystem and provide valuable information about what plants and insects may also be present. Join us a specialist from The Bird Store of Sturbridge, MA as we take to the pastures and pathways at OSV in search of the many birds that call the museum home. Learn about species of birds once present in New England, and how bird populations have changed with humanity over the centuries. Please bring your own optics for the best birdwatching experience!

This class is FREE, but we ask that you please register here.
