CSCE April Bird Walk

Centenary School of Creative Education

April Bird Walk | Saturday, April 13th

10:00 AM – Noon | At the Wesleyan Arboretum

Spring has sprung, and the Centenary School of Creative Education is inviting everyone to join us for a bird walk in the Wesleyan Arboretum located behind Wesleyan College. Migration will be well underway, and that's a great time for birds in Georgia. Professor James Ferrari will be leading us and giving us instruction about the natural history of birds during the walk.

Ferrari has been a biology professor at Wesleyan College since 1996. He received his B.A. in Biology from Middlebury College and a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Minnesota. He co-authored The Ecology of Fruit-Eating Birds in Georgia, 2009, with co-author Jerry Payne. Jim teaches courses in Ecology, Evolution, Field Biology, and Conservation Biology; he is also the Director of the 104-acre Wesleyan College Arboretum. He is past-president of both the Ocmulgee Audubon Society and the Georgia Ornithological Society.

Meet at the parking lot next to the tennis courts and Mathews Athletic Center at Wesleyan College (past the lake). We will enter the Arboretum trails at the entrance right next to the tennis courts. To get to the tennis courts, take the entrance to campus off of Tucker Rd. At the end of the walk, we will gather at the Arboretum pavilion for some light refreshments.

Whether you want to learn more about birds or simply want to enjoy a lovely morning observing them, please join us on the 13th. We encourage you to bring binoculars.
