Fall Programs will begin on Friday, September 19th with Matt Perry, well known expert in Woodland Species. His topic is The Birds of Our Own Forests. Expert and beginning birders alike will gain invaluable information on our woodland species, along with an understanding of the importance of protecting our woodlands. Matt Perry is the Conservation Director and Resident Naturalist for Spring Farm CARES in Clinton, NY. There he oversees habitat restoration projects at a 260 acre nature preserve. He is a Region 5 Editor of “The Kingbird” which is a quarterly journal published by the New York State Ornithological Association. Matt also writes a monthly nature-themed article for Mohawk Valley Living Magazine. The Birds of Our Own Forests is a presentation that features the many kinds of birds that can be found right here in the forests of Central New York. Close-up video footage of seldom seen summer residents like the Scarlet Tanager, Wood Thrush and Hooded Warbler will be shown. Please join us to learn about the habits of these species and dozens of others and hear their unique and beautiful songs.
