The Liberty Branch Library is hosting an introductory session on birding on Thursday, April 25, from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM, aimed at anyone interested from the age of 16 and older.

What to Expect at the Event

The event will take place in the Liberty Community Room A and B, where Bill Heck, an experienced bird watcher and volunteer with various bird conservation organizations like the National Audubon Society, will guide attendees through the basics of birding. The session covers essential bird watching skills including how to identify birds, where to find them, and what tools are necessary for a fulfilling birding experience.
