Birds, Bagels, and Brews

Come out and enjoy an early morning of birding, bagels, and brews. Grab a cup of coffee and a bagel as a Master Naturalist introduces the birds that call Blandford home in the summer season. You’ll develop skills for recognizing calls and identifying field marks of wetland, meadow, and forest dwellers, such as the equally quirky pileated woodpecker and belted kingfisher. Head out on the trail with binoculars (provided by Blandford) and see how many different species you can find!

This program is recommended for ages 14+. An adult chaperone is required to register and attend with any child registration.
