The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Buffalo Audubon Society and Medaille College announce a free introductory bird watching walk to the public at Riverside Park on Saturday, May 28, 2011.

Bird watching (often times referred to as birding) is the observation and study of birds through looking at (telescopes and binoculars) and listening for bird songs and calls.  This introductory bird watching walk at Riverside Park will help the general public learn about the birds of Buffalo and the Niagara River and get introduced to binoculars, guide books, and field marks. 

Buffalo Audubon naturalists and volunteers will be on hand to help first-time birders join the fastest growing recreational pastime in the United States.  Those who are interested in attending are asked to meet in the parking lot on Hotaling Drive in Riverside Park (enter across from Roesch Avenue) at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 28.

This free introductory walk is the beginning of a partnership between the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, Buffalo Audubon Society and Medaille College, for the purpose of building community involvement and training students on how to teach environmental education. The walk is free, but participants are asked to pre-register by calling Sal Sciandra at (716) 838-1249 x33 or sal@bfloparks.org

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
