Backyard Birding

with Annette LeBlanc Cate
September 1109:00 am - 12:00 pm
Wendell Gilley Museum, Southwest Harbor

Join the Wendell Gilley Museum and Island Readers & Writers for this special Saturday morning with Annette LeBlanc Cate, the author of Look Up! Birdwatching in Your Own Backyard for youngsters in 4th through 6th grades. We’ll meet at the Gilley then head out for a guided bird walk after a brief chat about keeping a nature journal. The walk ends back at the Gilley where we’ll take time to write in our nature journals, draw some of the birds we saw on the walk, and talk with the author. Each participant will get a  pocket-sized nature journal to call their own, and a copy of  Look Up! which Annette will personalize.

There is no fee for this event, which is co-sponsored by the Wendell Gilley Museum and Island Readers & Writers, but reservations are required.
