Audubon Miami Valley will host Dave Russell, Senior Lecturer, Department of Biology, Miami University at a public program on Tuesday,  APR 22, 7 – 9 PM.  Dave teaches introductory and advanced ornithology courses. He is a certified bird bander and trainer. 

The event will take place at the Chrisholm MetroPark in the Chrisholm-Augspurger House Meeting Room, 2070 Woodsdale Road, Trenton. 

Waves of warblers and other neo-tropical migrants are descending on the tri-state area.  More than 200 species are returning from South and Central America. They began arriving just a few weeks ago and now they are beginning to fill the forest and fields with the melodious songs of spring. Join Dave Russell for an evening of fun with a refresher course designed to hone your identification skills.

Through the Avian Research and Education Institute whose mission is “to protect and conserve avian populations through research, education, and advocacy” many area residents and students have learned about birds and the thrill of bird banding by visiting the Hueston Woods State Park banding station. Bird banding is a powerful tool with which to teach conservation lessons and become an advocate for the birds. AREI is sponsored and supported by Audubon Miami Valley.

The program is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
