Time: Sat, Jun 19, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center
Join Nat Wheelwright, Bowdoin College Ecology Professor Emeritus, for a morning nature walk at Hidden Valley Nature Center. Depending upon the weather, we’ll focus on interpreting bird behavior and recognizing their songs. If birds are quiet, we’ll observe how insect pollinators and herbivores interact with plants. Dr. Wheelwright is author of The Naturalist’s Notebook (with Bernd Heinrich) and Monteverde, Ecology and Conservation of a Tropical Cloud Forest (with Nalini Nadkarni).
What to bring: binoculars and/or hand lens if you have them, appropriate footwear and clothing. As always, be sure to do a tick check afterwards!
