Rima, the biology teacher out at Sisters High School, is again seeking help on some birding field trip days with her students. If you have an hour to spare in the following time slots to help encourage our next wave of birders, please email Rima.
Oh, and we need someone on Monday 4/16 12 - 3 pm to do a longer bird ID class.
Thanks for sharing your talents with our younguns!

Good afternoon bird enthusiasts!
As snow swirls down, spring is still bubbling just under the surface. The birds are returning!
I am writing to you with hopes you will help mentor small groups of biology students in learning how to identify birds. The biology classes will be learning about native birds, learning to identify them and use binoculars, and then designing their own studies to research bird adaptations in specific habitats here on the school grounds and in our local Trout Creek Conservation Area Forest. Support of the mentors is critical to the success of this project!
I need help from you on Monday 4/16/18 from 12:00. to 3 p.m. to learn bird identification practical skills at Indian Ford and Camp Polk Meadow Preserves. (Note, there are two sessions, morning 8:15 to 11:45, and afternoon 12 to 3. If you can only make the morning, let me know, and we can make that work.)
I also need mentors who can come to the high school in addition to 4/16 for a more days to work with the students to develop their studies and collect data. If you could come to some, but not all, the priority days are the first three, and morning days.
