SOFO: Young Birders Club—Purple Martins with John Shemilt, SOFO’s Purple Martin Steward: Children/Teens ages 8 - 18

Saturday, April 20, 2019

10:00 am - Club Leader: Miles Todaro, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator

Birding is a great way to make new friends, learn about the environment, and get outside…so join our Young Birders Club! We concentrate on birding in local areas, since Long Island has many great habitats that are home to a wide variety of species. If you have them, please bring binoculars and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States.

This special meeting of the club, with John Shemilt, will focus on purple martins. John is SOFO’s Purple Martin Steward and has been fascinated by purple martins since he was a young child.
