Kingston Library, at 55 Franklin Street, will present Birds of Kingston with Mark DeDea on Earth Day, Tuesday. April 22 at 4 p.m. for children ages 6 - 13 as part of the Celebrate Spring Program Series for school age children. For information or to register, please call 845-331-0507 ext. 7.
Mark DeDea, an avid birder, naturalist, and artist, and Caretaker of the Forsyth Nature Center and Zoo, will discuss the common birds of Kingston in this timely program during the magical period all birders look forward to….spring migration. Children will create a book of Birds of Kingston (one plate per month), that will help them to identify and understand our local birds and when and where to find these feathered jewels. Questions about optics, field guides, and even the right type of bird seed will also be addressed.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Birding is one of the most popular hobbies in the U.S.
Mark DeDea is also President of the Board of the nearby John Burroughs Natural History Society where he is active in coordinating field trips, educational outreach and activities.
The next program in the Celebrate Spring Program Series is:
