This one's for the bird(er)s...
This contest was designed for participants to:
Have fun discovering the bird species found in different habitats on Kent Land Trust Preserves,
Learn how to identify birds by sight and sound, and
Contribute data to a local and global scientific database.
Participate individually or as a family and visit the six focal preserves as often as you want between June 1st and
August 1st, 2023. Backpacks with binoculars can be checked out of the library for a week at a time to get you started, however you do not need to have the backpack to go birding. Backpack resources (except binoculars and books) can also be found on the Kent Land Trust website.
