This spring, the Cheshire County Conservation District (CCCD) in partnership with the Antioch Bird Club, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Windham County Natural Resources Conservation District and Southeastern Vermont Audubon Society will launch a multi-part workshop series running through 2023.

Participants will have a chance to learn about farm habitat dynamics for birds, habitat management, wildlife conservation on the farm, as well as species identification from experienced bird guides. The workshop series is open to birders and enthusiasts of all skill levels. Participants may bring binoculars; weather appropriate dress and boots for walking are recommended.

The first workshop will be held Monday, May 16, at 8 a.m. at Alyson’s Orchard, Walpole. Additional workshops will be held June 18 at 7:30 a.m. at Upper Meadows in Rockingham, Vt.; Oct. 1 at 9 a.m. at Picadilly Farm in Winchester; as well as Jan. 21 and March 22 at locations yet to be determined.
