    Event Description:

    A FREE Bird Learning Class

    Meet us at the entrance of the big red barn at 8am on Friday, July 8th for an intro to birding with Kassie! There is no charge for the class and all ages are welcome. Please wear something comfortable as we will be walking along the trails at the farm. In case of rain, this class will be held at the same time the following day. No reservations are necessary. We hope to see you there!

    About the Instructor: Hi, My name is Kassie LaVigne and I will be leading a Bird Learning 101 class at Lavender Hill Farm! I am a senior graduating in December from Michigan State University with a degree in Environmental Sciences and Sustainability. I would love to have you tag along on a mile walk with me and other adventures where I will be talking and teaching about five different birds in particular and pointing out any other additional nature facts that may pop up along the way! 

    About the Class: Lavender Hill Farm has 63 different bird species that have been spotted on the property so it was tough choosing a specific five to talk about. Since it is a general bird class, I chose to go with three more “common” birds– ones that you may have seen in your backyard and always wanted to know more about– and two birds that you may not have heard about before. The birds that will be discussed in this class are Red-winged Black Birds, Turkey Vultures, Indigo Buntings, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and Killdeers! The knowledge you’ll learn is the size, identifying features, behavior, and habitat of these five birds, and some bonus nature facts!
