Bird Lecture & Hike

Join us at Kehoe Conservation Camp for a mid-morning bird talk followed by a forest foray.

Vermont wildlife photographer Brian Machanic will present ‘The Art in Birding’ at the Kehoe Education Center in Castleton, Vermont on Sunday, September 30 at 10:00 a.m. The presentation will be followed by a one-hour bird walk at the brand new Bonsawino Wildlife Management Area adjacent to the education center. 

Machanic is a native Vermonter who has had a passion for wildlife since childhood and has been an avid naturalist and photographer his whole life.  He began selling scenic and wildlife images 30 years ago at his Nature’s Eye Studio in Charlotte and has published photos and stories in regional and national magazines. Machanic recently published his first book, entitled This Book Is for The Birds

“During my presentation, viewers will get an up-close look at the beauty and unique attributes of various species through an exploration of a large portfolio of avian images – no binoculars or spotting scopes required!” said Machanic. 

Following Machanic’s presentation, participants will have an opportunity to take a one-hour field walk on Bonsawino Wildlife Management Area. Ali Thomas of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will lead the field walk and help participants identify some of the amazing birds that can be found there.  

Bring your binoculars, water, and your birding list to this free event. To participate, please register by emailing Alison Thomas or calling 802-371-9975.
